If you’re looking for an adrenaline-filled, pulse-pounding way to have fun all day, grab an axe and get your throw on at Lumber Jill’s! Axe throwing is the newest, most popular live entertainment game in the Lowcountry. It’s kind of like darts…but with axes! Axe throwing is great for a few hours of amusement, stress relief, team building, and even corporate events in Goose Creek, SC. Whether you’re looking for a great way to celebrate the weekend or want a new idea for your company event, Lumber Jill’s has got you covered.
The Lumber Jill’s revolution began after co-owners Jill and Heath spent a date night with friends throwing axes in Charleston. After having so much fun, the entrepreneurial couple quickly realized they could create their own take on axe throwing. Soon after, Lumber Jill’s was born!
The name Lumber Jill’s isn’t just a play on our co-owner’s name – it involves a really interesting piece of history too. Across the pond, the Women’s Timber Corps “manned” the lumber yards in England while the men were serving in WWII. They affectionately became known as Lumberjills, Britain’s answer to Rosie the Riveter. Without these brave ladies, Lumber Jill’s wouldn’t exist. We would be remiss if we didn’t salute them for the example they set!
At the end of the day, we want to provide every one of our guests with an outstanding axe-throwing experience. So, grab your friends, co-workers, family, or favorite people and join us for an axe-throwing party you won’t soon forget.
Axes haven’t been this popular in America since “The Shining” hit theaters way back in 1980!
In cities all around the nation, axe-throwing facilities are popping up left and right as a fun, healthy way for people of all ages to congregate and enjoy a night of friendly competition and stress relief. In the last few years, the sport of axe throwing has exploded – so much so that the World Axe Throwing League was assembled in 2017 to coordinate international axe-throwing competitions. Since that time, many axe-throwing events have popped up on national TV stations like ESPN.
Perhaps the most popular reason folks love axe throwing in Goose Creek is for stress relief. We’ve even heard some customers say it’s a cheaper form of therapy! In reality, axe tossing gives you a therapeutic release that is hard to replicate. A few hard throws with an axe and your body releases a flood of endorphins, which help increase your energy, improve your mood, and facilitate healthy blood flow. If you have pent-up anger, nothing feels better than chucking a heavy axe at a target. Hitting a bullseye is even better!
Since axe throwing is such an exhilarating activity, many people don’t realize that they are exercising their arms, legs, abs, pecs, and even back when they come to Lumber Jill’s. Like high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts, axe throwing works several muscle groups at once. These exercises strengthen your core and help define your muscles. When coupled with a healthy diet, regular axe-throwing activities can even help you shed a few pounds.
You might be surprised to hear that axe throwing is one of the most sought-after company event ideas in Goose Creek, SC. Sure, your colleagues might think it’s a little weird to host a corporate meeting at an axe-throwing facility. But once your co-worker hits their target, they’ll quickly understand how much fun they can have. Perhaps more importantly, axe tossing is a safe, fun way to conduct trust exercises and build team morale overall.
When you get right down to it, axe throwing is good, clean, healthy fun. Axe throwing helps relieve shoulder tension, while laughing helps engage your body’s core. When you throw in an adult beverage or two, laughs become easier and fun flows more freely. You can’t help but have the time of your life at Lumber Jill’s in the Lowcountry.
Axe throwing isn’t reserved only for adults – kids can get in on the fun and excitement too. Our warm, inviting atmosphere inspires people to embrace their inner champion, even if they’re under 18. At Lumber Jill’s, we can accommodate kids ages 10 and up. Before we pass them an axe, we will evaluate their skill level to ensure their safety. Contact us today for more info on birthday celebrations and whole facility rentals.
Status quote, average, ordinary…these are qualities that no employer would want out of their employees. So, why host a team-building event at a venue with the same characteristics?
If you’re on the hunt for corporate event venues in Goose Creek, SC, you just hit the jackpot. We may be a little biased, but Lumber Jill’s is a fantastic corporate event venue for companies looking to try something new.
Axe throwing for corporate events is fun, high-energy, and safe for all your employees. We’re talking an adrenaline-filled day with your own private axe-throwing lanes. Get your clients or your team out of the office and give them something to be excited about!
In addition to our standard reservations, we are happy to offer celebration, corporate, and full facility rental packages. Planning a surprise birthday party for your best friend? Celebrating a life event with that special someone? Looking for a spot for your family reunion? Axe throwing in Goose Creek, SC is the perfect activity for your group! For the most memorable (or hazy) celebration, don’t forget to ask us about alcoholic beverage service and additional lane time.
Please note that our celebration package is designed for customers over the age of 12. Two adults must be present at all times.
We understand that axe throwing isn’t your typical date night or even guy’s night activity. We get it – you’re hurling real axes at a target that is only a few feet away. On the surface, that can sound a little scary. But don’t worry, many of our first-time guests have questions about how our process works too.
One of the best parts of owning Lumber Jill’s is our ability to give back to our local community. We are always on the hunt for new, inventive ways to serve our citizens. That’s why, once a month, we host Axe of Kindness night to shine a light on an important organization, charity, or good cause. These exciting events give our customers a compelling way to make a real difference in someone’s life.

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Berkeley County School District has announced that four of its schools will be transitioning to virtual learning for one week because of staffing concerns.
The district said beginning Friday, students at Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High will learn from home and return to the in-person school setting on Jan. 24.
The temporary conversion to distance learning is due to staffing concerns and not student infection rate concerns, according to the district.
As a result, athletic and extracurricular activities will proceed as normal, district officials said.
“The decision to convert Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High to distance learning is based on operational concerns,” said Deon Jackson, BCSD Superintendent. “Staffing shortages have greatly necessitated this decision as school staffs continue to be impacted by COVID-19 isolations and quarantine protocol, and the substitute pool is limited when relied upon by 47 schools. We understand the burden this places on our students, staff and families as our shared goal is to provide quality instruction to our students in our buildings; however, we had to consider how the limited availability of staff impacts safety on campus and instruction. We look forward to the return of these students on Monday, January 24.”
The district released the following additional information:
Schools will work with staff and families to ensure that all students receive their Chromebooks. Information concerning access to assignments and livestream instruction schedules will be provided to students and/or parents by principals and teachers.
BCSD will continue to provide breakfast and lunch at no cost to students at these four schools during this temporary conversion to a distance learning platform. Meals will be distributed Monday through Friday by a drive-through pick up service.
Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High students can pick-up breakfast and lunch (10 a.m. to 12 p.m.) from the following locations:
Students will not be permitted to enter the buildings or eat on-site. Child Nutrition will be using the “roster system” so the names of the students will need to be provided by the person(s) picking up the meals.
“We need the support and cooperation of our families and communities to ensure that staff and students return to school healthy and that our remaining schools stay open,” Jackson continued. “Our schools mirror their communities, so we ask that our families and communities follow SC DHEC guidelines, maintain physical distancing in group settings, practice good hygiene, limit unnecessary interactions and gatherings, and wear a mask when physical distancing cannot be achieved or is not practical.”
Cane Bay High, College Park Middle, Goose Creek Elementary, and Goose Creek High students will return to campuses from distance learning on Monday, January 24. All other BCSD schools will continue to operate in-person following their normal schedules.

The curtains came up on the Region 7-AAAAA basketball slate on Jan. 11.
Goose Creek made the trip up Highway 52 to Moncks Corner to tangle with Berkeley and Cane Bay welcomed Wando into the snake pit.
The girls teams from Cane Bay and Berkeley started off 1-0 while Goose Creek’s boys and Wando’s boys also sparked the region slate with a victory celebration.
Berkeley’s girls pull out a 39-33 win against the Gators, getting a game-high 26 points from forward Peighton Jambor. Nakeshia Jerideau and Amani McCray chipped in four points apiece for coach Crystal Peace’s squad.
Peace said she was pleased with the efforts of young point guard Saniya Sanders and her ability to communicate with her teammates on the floor. She also said the Stags have to get better moving forward to compete in what figures to a tough journey through the region schedule.
Goose Creek’s girls were paced by Samiya Grant and Ravin Griffin with 17 and 10 points, respectively.
Berkeley led by four at the break and went on to lead by as many as 12 points. Goose Creek closed within six points in the final period.
“There are a lot of things we have to work on,” Goose Creek coach Tim Baldwin said. “The thing I like is the two seniors are starting to lead a little bit. We’re dealing with a lot of kids who don’t have a lot of varsity experience. We’re going to be learning on the fly but I really like the girls. They don’t mind working hard.”
In the boys game, Goose Creek built a 19-2 lead in the first quarter and coasted to a 70-36 victory.
Britt led the Gators boys with a game-high 20 points while Elijah Dates and Daunte Taylor added double digits, too, scoring 12 and 10 respectively. Shane Potts chipped in nine points.
Damon Brown paced Berkeley with 12 points while Troy Reid contributed nine points. Josh Youngblood chipped in six points.
Cane Bay’s girls improved to 13-3 with a 46-24 win over Wando. Cobras guard Alaina Nettles led all scorers with 23 points and Jasmine Jenkins added 10 points. Tatum Carr chipped in four points.
“They’ve been playing well pretty much all season,” Cane Bay girls coach Ira Owens said. “The thing we’ve done better here lately is getting off to a more consistent start. We had a couple games before Christmas we lost because we had poor-shooting first halves.”
The Cobras built a 10-point halftime lead and pulled away in the second half, outscoring the Warriors 23-11 in the second half.
The win was the fifth straight for Cane Bay’s girls and set a new high mark for wins in a season for the Cobras, who began playing in 2008-09.
In the boys game, Wando scored the final five points to edge the Cobras, 55-54. The Warriors overcame an 11-point deficit to start the region off on the right foot.
Stratford had the night off on Jan. 11 but is slated to travel to Cane Bay on Jan. 14.
Cane Bay’s boys fell to 12-6.
Faith Christian 72,
Northside Christian 41
Faith Christian’s boys won their sixth straight game and improved to 9-3 on the season.
Battery Creek 53,
The Hanahan boys basketball team fell to Battery Creek in overtime on Jan. 11.
Keith Bryant and Dru Goldsmith led the Hawks with 15 and 11 points, respectively. Malik Horry chipped in nine points and Kit Cooper eight points.
Palmetto Christian 65,
St. John’s Christian 60
St. John’s Christian boys lost to visiting Palmetto Christian on Jan. 11.
Wallace Hester poured in 30 points for the Cavaliers and Brock Ray added seven points.
The St. John’s Christian girls also lost a close game, falling 49-44 to the Lowcountry Wildcats.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. – The Goose Creek Planning Commission is looking for public input concerning the city’s future redevelopment plans for the Red Bank Road corridor.
The corridor includes Red Bank Road from the Highway 52 intersection to past Howe Hall Road.
In an interview with ABC News 4, Goose Creek Mayor Greg Habib said Red Bank Road could be transformed into a thriving downtown area.
“We just really feel like there is a great opportunity for redevelopment there, to create an area whereby folks in our area will have a neat place to go,” Habib told the TV station.
As part of the redevelopment plan, city officials said they hope to beautify the area and help to alleviate some traffic woes.

KEARNEY, Neb. (Press Release) - The Grand View (Ia.) University Vikings, the top-ranked team in the NAIA, used two rallies to get past fifth-ranked Nebraska-Kearney, 19-18, Saturday afternoon at the Health & Sports Center.
This dual was a rare opportunity to see two of the most successful non-Division I programs battle it out. The Vikings, from Des Moines, have won nine of the last 10 NAIA National Titles while the Lopers are a perennial NCAA Division II power with three National Titles to its credit.
“Duals never go how you write them down on paper, which is the beauty of the sport. It’s a match where I thought we were capable of winning everyone, top to bottom. But we just didn’t perform consistently enough and Grand View did,” Loper head coach Dalton Jensen said. “They made the tough choice to go out and be the aggressor in some of those toss up matches or even the ones that favored us. Their dual win streak continues (112th win in a row) and we appreciate them coming over and wrestling us.”
To start the day, seventh-ranked Carson Taylor (133 lbs.) fell behind 6-0 right off the bat as Lincoln senior Wesley Dawkins recorded a takedown and four-point near fall. However, Taylor came all the way back and racked up 12 third-period points to win, 13-8. He managed 1:22 of riding time in the second, finished with 1:27 and had his own four-point near fall. At 184 pounds, 10th-ranked Austin Eldredge (McPherson, Kan.) bested top-ranked Ben Lee, 5-2, thanks to four first period points. That cut the GVU lead to 13-11 with senior Hayden Prince (Goose Creek, S.C.) jetting out to an 8-1 lead at 197 pounds. He tallied an early takedown and a four-point near fall but sixth-ranked Owen Braungardt used a reversal and then a fall with eight seconds left in the period to win and change momentum.
”In a dual meeting setting momentum is huge. Not just from one match to the next, based on the result, but even situation-to-situation in one match,” Jensen said. “We let some of those individual momentum swings in matches not go our way. I have no doubt in my mind Wesley and Hayden are National Champion-caliber guys. There’s time to get there … they need to find a way to be grittier and make tougher choices in matches.”
Sixth-ranked heavyweight Lee Herrington dominated top-ranked Greg Hagan, 14-3, as he not only had a four-point near fall but also was awarded four penalty points. Finally, in the brother showdown everyone was waiting for, sixth-ranked Josh Portillo (Clarion, Ia.) bested second-ranked Justin Portillo, 12-10, in the first sudden victory period. The back-and-forth dual saw Justin forced extra time thanks to a last second escapes. Josh recorded an early takedown in OT to secure the win.
”It’s tough for Josh to have to go out and wrestle his brother,” Jensen said. “Austin is in a descent down to 174 … we’re going to put him down (at that weight) and see what he can do. Kudos to Matt and Lee. They really want to go fight for this team and score as many points as they can.”
UNK hosts the Midwest Duals next Friday and Saturday at the Buffalo County Fairgrounds.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – A Lowcountry woman is looking for answers after she said a Walmart gift card she received, ended up being a scam.
Alicia Windham is a mother of three, who lives in Summerville. She said her father gave her a $100 Walmart gift card for Christmas. Windham said the card was purchased at the Walmart located on Saint James Avenue in Goose Creek on December 8th.
Windham told News 2, she tried to use the gift card the day after Christmas, but to her surprise, she said it had no money on it.
“I got a bunch of stuff because there was supposed to be $100 on the gift card,” said Windham. “Thank God I had some other money on me because the lady slid the card twice and she said ‘Ma’am, this has zero balance.’”
After that, Windham said she went to Customer Service, where they told her the gift card was already been used multiple times in other states. They printed her a receipt with the card’s purchase history.
Windham reached out to Walmart to see what could be done to get the money back.
Windham shared Walmart’s response with News 2. The email from the retailer read:
“We have reviewed your inquiry. Unfortunately, we have determined that your case does not fall under the terms and conditions of a compromised gift card. We are unable to refund or replace this card.”
The email continued, “Walmart is not liable for lost, stolen or compromised funds.”
Bailey Parker with the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs said this is one way scammers target gift cards.
“They will actually take the cards and they’ll copy the numbers off the back. They’ll even copy the pin,” Parker explained.
She said after that, the scammers will attempt to use the card repeatedly until it goes through, which is when it has been purchased.
When purchasing a gift card, Parker said there are a few ways consumers can avoid being scammed.
She said to make sure the gift card hasn’t been tampered with. Another tip is to buy gift cards that are behind the counter, if available.
Parker said it’s best to use gift cards sooner, rather than later. She said if they are being purchased as gifts, they should be bought last minute. The last tip is to register the gift card if the option is there.
News 2 reached out to Walmart. While they didn’t provide a statement, they said they would contact Windham.
