START YOUR SCHOOL PAINTBALL TRIP

The day truly begins when you arrive in the parking area where your students are checked in and geared up with their protective clothing, weapons and ammo. They will be given a safety briefing in this initial half an hour to make sure they understand how to stay safe and enjoy the day to the max. You can join the fun or relax at the base camp, where our hot and cold drinks and food can be purchased, leaving the organisation of the day to our competent marshals. During the three hours of a morning or afternoon session, there will be between four and six games with refreshment breaks where teams can discuss tactics and reload for the next round.

Get in touch with a member of our team to discuss your group’s requirements and to plan the perfect school trip that will give your students the best day out and a chance to learn skills of teamwork and collaboration outside of the classroom environment.

SAFETY MEASURES: ENSURING A SECURE PAINTBALL EXPERIENCE FOR KIDS

We offer a completely safe, but thrilling, paintballing experience for your school trip.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR YOUNG SOLDIERS

We understand taking your students to shoot at each other can be a daunting prospect which is why we have the risk assessment aspects covered and our marshals are trained to help your students focus on fun and safety throughout their day. We advise students to come dressed in old, comfortable clothing and footwear with ankle support and good grip as the woodlands can be muddy, wet and slippery. A change of clothing is also advisable to enable gamers to go home in something warm and dry at the end of the day.

 

School paintball trips are specially tailored to players’ ages to ensure a safe and fun experience.

AGE-APPROPRIATE WITH PAINTBALL GUNS

For younger school parties we provide age-appropriate paintball guns that are lighter and easier to operate making the whole experience safer and more fun. Designed to be a lower impact game than the adult version, with smaller paintballs fired at a lower velocity ensuring it’s not a painful experience – just pure fun. For older students, the adult equipment enables school parties to enjoy a high-octane day of safe exercise and energy.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SCHOOL PAINTBALL TRIPS?

There are a huge number of benefits to youngsters who play paintball, not the least of which is the benefits to mental health.

  • TEAMBUILDING AND SOCIAL SKILLS

    Working in teams with others on strategies and tactics is of huge benefit to the relationships between youngsters in a group, and sometimes it is surprising how some students rise to the challenge of leadership and working with others.

  • MENTAL HEALTH AND STRESS RELIEF

    Being able to relax outside of the normal classroom environment and participating in a fun, activity in a controlled environment is of vast benefit to young people’s mental health and wellbeing, relieving stress.

  • PHYSICAL EXERCISE OUTDOORS

    Paintballing involves a lot of running, dodging and crawling which gives a great deal of physical exercise and as it takes place outdoors it encourages the connection with nature and enjoying being outside and away from screens and technology.

  • STRATEGIC THINKING AND CONFIDENCE BUILDING

    Quick thinking and rapid decision making in adjusting strategy and problem solving are encouraged in the fast pace of the paintballing game and success in hitting targets or strategising boosts a youngster’s confidence and self-esteem whilst improving concentration skills.

SCHOOL PAINTBALL TRIPS FAQs

  • What age are school paintball trips aimed at?

    Junior paintball is catered to anyone between 8-11 years because the guns are lightweight, safer and easy to operate firing at a lower velocity and with smaller paintballs. School trips of students 11 years old and above can play in the adult game zones with adult equipment and paintballs.

  • Is there a minimum group booking required for junior paintball?

    We do require a minimum group booking of 8 people, however, teaching staff and other adults can join in to make up the numbers!

  • Does paintball hurt?

    With junior paintball, the guns are smaller and lighter, firing at a lower velocity and with smaller paintballs – this means they won’t hurt as much when you are shot. With the adult games, paintballs shouldn’t hurt if students are wearing the overalls and suitable clothing underneath. Overalls with high padded collars to protect the neck along with masks and gloves help to ensure that skin which could be hurt by a paintball shot will be covered. We recommend wearing comfortable and warm clothing underneath the overalls for added padding and protection.

  • What should a kid wear to play paintball?

    When it comes to paintballing, it is normally recommended to wear older clothes. The reason behind this is that while you are wearing the protective overalls provided, there is a chance of getting paint splatters on the clothes you are wearing underneath. Therefore, opting for older clothes you don’t mind potentially getting stained is a wise choice to ensure the longevity of your favourite outfits. A change of clothes for the end of the session is recommended.

  • How long do paintball sessions last?

    All of our paintball games could last anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours and sessions are either a half or a full day.
