Thank you for visiting the School Activity Days website
We offer events at woodland venues and also some mobile facilities where we can run an event at your school, college or youth camp. The advantage with a mobile game is you can save on transport to the woodland venues. This can be several hundred pounds for large groups. We offer events from one hour to full days and have organised week long events at Scout camps and offer multi activity options.
School Activity Days are important because it helps students stay physically active, develop interests in different types of activities and sports, builds teamwork and other social skills, and improves focus and academic performance.
Standard Laser Tag for ages 8+ with onsite and off site options.
Operation Laser Tag offers woodland laser tag games at our venue in Brighouse and in conjunction with Yorkshire Outdoor Activity Centre (YOAC) at Wakefield. We also offer a fully mobile service using inflatable barricades which can be set up outdoors on a grassy field, in your own woodland, on astro turf or even a playground or indoors in a sports hall.
The off site events have proven very popular over the past 12 years running events all over England, Wales and Scotland.
Mini Tag for ages 6+
Due mainly to the size and weight of the standard laser taggers we have developed mini tag for ages 6+. We use light weight plastic taggers (gun) making it easy for use with junior players. We can organise games at our woodland venues, indoors in a sports hall or on a school field/playground.
Mini taggers, and if required barricades, can be rented so that you can run your own activity sessions. We use a local carrier or use our own transport to deliver the hire equipment. For more information please email the office or complete a contact form.
We offer paintball games at our Brighouse woodland venue and at Wakefield in conjuction with YOAC. We do not offer off site options for paintball. We can offer sessions from 2 hours up to full days. Due to the nature of paintball games we can only accept school groups' sessions up to 40 players. If you have larger numbers please consider the laser tag option.
With paintball there is a very strict age restriction. All players must be a minimum of 12 years old (year 7 at school) There is no flexibility as it is a condition of our insurance policy. For more information please visit our paintball page.
Battlezone Archery - Do you have the hunger?
Battlezone Archery is a new activity which can be played in the woodland at the Wakefield venue or mobile at your location using inflatable barricades.
Two teams fire specially designed arrows in an attempt to "tag" an opponent or hit targets placed in the game zone. For more information visit our Battlezone Archery page
We have three shooting ranges that can be hired as part of a multi activity event or as a stand-alone shooting gallery. The TOMB is a paintball shooting range that uses "Velcro" paintballs instead of standard paintballs which would result in a "mess" to clean up, We also have a "Nerf Target" range specifically designed for use with soft dart guns (Nerfs), The third range is for use with the Battlezone Archery equipment or the "Bazooka ball" guns or bows. All three ranges can be used outdoors or indoors in a sport hall or similar.
We can supply soft dart games for indoor events using the inflatable barricades, the target zone for a top gun shooting event or both. We only use genuine Nerf guns at our events and supply the soft darts as part of a package. We have organised several events where players have been encouraged to bring and use their own Nerf weapons. We operate a strict safety rule that all players and spectators must wear eye protection which we supply.
