Acitivites available for hire

The Unit is now able to offer some fantastic activities for Scouting groups and events. Available for the majority of sections, abilities and experience, our qualified and permitted Unit Leaders will make sure your young members get the most out of every activity.

Much of our equipment is also available to hire for your own use, just make sure you have the right Leaders with the right permits.

We’ve kept our costs down to the absolute minimum so that everyone can participate. Our costs cover equipment maintenance and upkeep, transport of equipment in Unit vehicles and the very little left is fed directly back into Woodseats Explorers.

Check out below what we can offer, and how we can help. Any questions, email us.

We ask that all bookings are made far enough in advance so that we can see what Unit Leaders are available.

Air Rifle Shooting

Air rifle shooting is a great introduction to the sport of shooting. It’s the obvious next step for anyone who’s tried laser games or paintballing. It gives people a chance to learn the basics of safe gun handling, as well as the art of shooting straight.

All our equipment is brand new and can be set up at The Unit, your hut or an external event.

permission form is required for everyone trying this activity, even adults and Leaders.

Archery

Archery’s all about using a bow to propel an arrow through the air. They’ll have to keep an eye on the target as you pull back the arrow and then release. 

We can even mix it up a little with challenges and games to keep it interesting.

Basic Bouldering

Bouldering’s all about climbing small rock formations without using ropes. 

The short routes (or ‘problems’) aren’t high – climbers move horizontally from one end to another, rather than trying to reach the sky. You don’t need to know anything about knots to enjoy bouldering. 

This is a small indoor wall, best for Beavers and Cubs.
