Paintball is one of our most popular activities for schools and youth groups. Often combined with one of our other activities as a full day of Team Building. We offer reduced priced packages for school groups.

Autumn 2020 - Paintball is Official FUN.
Paintball is considered by the UK Government to be a safe activity in larger groups as social distancing is inherent in the activity. More info.
We welcome groups of between 8 and 24, groups will be divided into tables of 6 in the fort area for social times between games.
Oaker Wood has been organising Paintball for over 20 years - making us the most established Paintball site in Herefordshire. Many years of experience, together with unique Games Zones including The Helicopter and The Bus, mean our customers return to us again and again.
We offer Paintball from 8 years. Children aged 8-11 play our Junior Paintball and groups aged 11+ play senior Paintball.
Each session starts with a full safety briefing. Two teams will be selected and, once armed, will battle it out to achieve their set objectives. We operate a points system to add an extra incentive to our battle hardened recruits.
Our paintball site is a short drive from Hereford and offers first class facilities, Ladies & Gents toilets, free tea/coffee & soft drinks, natural combat zones (to suit our purpose built scenario's), on site car parking, friendly, experienced and neutral marshals!!
Please note that we treat you as a complete group, and unlike many paintball sites, we do NOT make you join together with other parties.
Thank you, we had a fantastic time and I have only heard great things from the boys. Same again for next year please.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to your team for an enjoyable weekend - this is the second year we have attended and the children and staff had an amazing time thank you so much we love coming to Oakerwood.
Mary Hare School - May 2019
Once again, a huge Thank-You to you and your team for a brilliant couple of days in the woods. The activities were just right for the boys, and the feedback we got was overwhelmingly positive. So… We’d like to get booked in for next year please!
James Soper - Warwick School - Oct 18
We had one camp village with pods to ourselves which made it easier to allow the pupils to be under our supervision during free time which was good! The staff are very friendly and very approachable and most importantly child friendly. Hopefully this will be the first of more visits planned by our secondary school. Cheers Oaker Wood
Holte School - Oct 17
First time of taking out school pupils to Oaker Wood. The pupils stay in camping pods which I thought were quite accommodating and warm with heaters that automatically switch on if the temperature goes below 18 degrees. The site itself is very impressive with an array of activities to suit all ages and abilities spread over the site.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your hard work and the hard work of your fantastic staff to make our trip so successful.
Caroline Gilbert - Kings High, Warwick - June 16
I wanted to thank you and the rest of the team at Oaker for another fantastic weekend. All the students are still buzzing from the activities and again we were looked after brilliantly.
Natalie Anderton - St Thoms More 6th Form
The food is plentiful and delicious ("this is the best curry ever", said several boys), and the activities of adrenaline high ropes and paintball are perfect for the needs of active lads.

Difficult as it may seem, the Oaker Wood experience was even better this time than last year. With the newly-built wooden pods, the boys had heated accommodation and no wind or rain could unsettle their night's sleep.
The camp remains a magical place, with the fairy lights and firepit. Even the compost toilet has become part of the legend!
