2-hour instructional sessions for outdoor archery and axe throwing! This program is available for ages 6+ and is not restricted to youth! We have had adult groups come out and have a great time! Perfect for a family night out, or company team building sessions!
Our experienced staff will teach you axe throwing and beginner archery using traditional recurve bows. After your 2-hour booking your group can enjoy a camp fire (provided). All the equipment is provided for you! Groups are encouraged to bring their own camp fire meals or refreshments! All participants will be asked be responsible, and will be asked to leave if management determines safety to anyone is at risk.
Challenge courses are for all ages and are fun for everyone! Open to private groups of 8 people or more. Team building and challenge courses help you communicate and work together to effectively work out situations for the success of the group! This would be great for classrooms, groups (like scouts, guides and more!), company outings, sports teams and more! If you’re a group of people wanting a fun challenge, this is your opportunity!
All of our elements are close to the ground and do not require equipment (helmets, harnesses and ropes) like high ropes courses do. This is a safe event for everyone of all ages and capabilities.
We have the following elements:
We also have dozens of team building and initiative tasks that do not involve and structures, and just use small pieces of equipment! After your 3 hour session groups are encouraged to stay for a camp fire (included), and bring their own refreshments and camp fire meals!
