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 Hanahan, 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 Hanahan 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 Hanahan, 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 Hanahan, 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 Hanahan, 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.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – Hanahan residents are still frustrated over trains that continue to block area roadways for hours at a time.
One train was seen blocking Hanahan Road for hours Wednesday morning, and before that, Hanahan town administrator Mike Cochran told News 2 a train sat blocking roads for more than 20 hours straight recently.
The road the trains are blocking is a major thoroughfare for people driving to and from Rivers Avenue and Hanahan.
“We’ve got about 7,000 cars a day that cross the tracks right here, and in the last several months, we’ve had multiple instances where the tracks just get blocked by a parked train,” said Cochran.
Drivers are forced to add additional time to their commute; it also slows emergency responses.
“From the city’s perspective, if you’re trying to get an ambulance through the city, you’re crossing here in order to get over to the hospitals,” he explained.
Technically, blocking the road is illegal according to more-than-100-year-old state laws. But the fine is only $5 to $20, and it is difficult to enforce.
“We have contacted CSX and spoke with them on several occasions, and they’re aware of it, but it really is frustrating for our residents and frustrating for everybody involved,” said Cochran. “Last week, it sat there for over 30 hours.”
Cochran said he has a plan that may give residents a way to know when a train is stopped in the area. The county owns the library at the corner of Murray Drive and Highland Park Road. He’s asked about placing a camera there.
“I said is there a way that we could put a camera, or the county put a camera, on the library? If they were to put a camera on that library and point it toward the tracks, we would have a constant feed of exactly what the status of the tracks are.”
The video would also be streamed online.
“We’ll have that ability to push that information out, so while it’s not a perfect solution, it will at least allow an option because right now the only way you know if the tracks are blocked it’s the drive to them.”
News 2 reached out to CSX to see if they have any plans to change their policy of blocking trains for hours at a time. We are waiting to hear back.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCSC) - Hanahan Middle School is hiring a new, first year principal from within the Berkeley County School District.
Kelli Roberson has been with Berkeley County Schools for 20 years, and the district says she starts her first school year as a principal on Monday.
Roberson did her student practicum at Hanahan Middle when she was a student at the College of Charleston. So she says her new role as principal is a full circle moment.
This year she’s launching “flex time.” she says it’s an allotted amount of time after lunch for intentional and purposeful intervention. This allows teachers to assess where students are in their education, as well as socially and emotionally. Roberson says it also gives teachers time to discuss areas they would like to improve.
The Hanahan Middle School guidance department is also implementing what they call minute meetings, Roberson says. Guidance counselors will meet with every student for at least one minute at the beginning of the year, making sure kids have a one-on-one conversation with a counselor.
“Well, for some of our kids, they haven’t been inside a school building in 18 months. So, it’s just, you know, not only are we going to be thinking about their academics, but we’re having to re-teach the norms of being around people and being connected to others,” Roberson said. “I’m sure they’ve missed that, I think teachers, adults missed it when we were not in a building with one-another, so it’s just a way to continue to build those connections.”
She adds that there are some learning methods that were advanced during the pandemic that they plan to keep in place.
“I think just using technology as a means of, especially when students are out and absent, knowing that we can still provide that instruction when students aren’t present in the building, whatever that reason might be,” Roberson said. “And it’s also just using the tools that are available just to make sure all students have access to notes and any kind of resources they can use to go back and re-learn something or just as a reminder, it’ll help them do the work that they need to do.”
Roberson says there’s a lot of history and community support around Hanahan Middle School which is encouraging for this first-time principal.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – A new multi-use park is being constructed in Hanahan. It comes after more than 75% of voters approved a bond referendum for the project back in November.
The brand new 53-acre park is located next to Bowen’s Corner Elementary and will serve several purposes in the Hanahan community.
“We are just so excited about this new park,” said Hanahan Mayor Christie Rainwater. “When the federal government partnered with us and donated the land, it had to be used for parks and rec. It was exactly what the city of Hanahan needed.”
The last time Hanahan opened new ballfields there were only 13,700 people in the town. Now, about 29,000 call Hanahan home.
“There will be tennis courts, an artificial turf field, ballfields, a dog park, fishing pond, picnic spaces – you name it,” said Mayor Rainwater. “Everything that you would love to see in a park will be here.”
The project will cost more than $11 million. The Berkeley County School District agreed to pay nearly $1 million for artificial turf on a field so that it could be used as a practice field.
“We will partner with them to make sure they now have the things they need to play their sports,” the mayor said.
Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb said Hanahan has been working on the project for some time, even during the full ten years he was town administrator.
“It’s critical because it’s a quality-of-life project,” he said. “If you’re going to be a vibrant city, a vibrant community, people are looking for parks and recreation- do you want to draw in young families, do you want to be able to keep the families that you’ve drawn in?”
Bryce Florie grew up in Hanahan and has coached kids in the area, He said this is a great project.
“Just the way the community has grown and the need for it- it’s so important and the way the city came together… it’s a good place for everyone,” he said.
Mayor Rainwater hopes to have the park finished a year from now. The park has not yet been named.

With the amount of talent on Hanahan High School’s roster, lofty expectations are probably reasonable as the sun comes up on another baseball season for longtime coach Brian Mitchell and the Hawks.
Mitchell, who has more than 300 career wins, returns a stacked group from a squad that captured a region title and won 18 games in 2021. The Hawks entered the season ranked No. 7 in Class AAA by the S.C. Baseball Coaches Association.
“We have a solid group of returners,” Mitchell said. “Our main goal is to win the region but if our kids play like they’re capable, they have the ability to play deep into the playoffs.”
That includes a journey all the way to the final week of the postseason where the Hawks haven’t flown since 2012. They also placed runner-up in the state in 2010.
“In terms of velocity and just knowing how to pitch, this is probably the deepest we’ve been on the mound,” Mitchell said. “We’ve got a lot of guys back who have already shown they can swing the bat.”
The Hawks finished 3-1 in the Sandlapper Classic in the preseason, beating Chesnee (7-2), Spring Valley (10-1) and Dutch Fork (2-0) before falling to Carolina Forest (4-3) in the championship game.
Three returning players batted over .300 last spring, paced by senior shortstop Aryan Patel, a Citadel signee. Patel batted .359 with 20 RBIs and 28 runs scored. He walked 21 times and his .495 on-base percentage was the highest on the team.
Also in the middle of the infield, senior second baseman Ethan Walker batted .328 and scored 22 runs with a .471 on-base percentage. Senior outfielder Mason Woznac chimed in with a .316 batting average.
In the Sandlapper Classic, Patel led the Hawks with a .538 batting average and knocked in three runs. Walker and Woznac hit over .400 in the tournament. Woznac drove in three runs and scored four times.
Senior third baseman Brick Nichols and senior first baseman Foster Nicodin are returning starters on the corners. Nichols, a Francis Marion signee, batted .274 with 15 RBIs and Nicodin launched four home runs last season. Both hit over .300 in the Sandlapper Classic while Nichols scored four runs.
Junior Braylon Mitchell, the coach’s son, and junior Camden Kackley will see plenty of time on the infield dirt depending on who is pitching.
In addition to Woznac in left field, brothers Hunter and Landon Gomes are starters in center and right. Additional outfielders are junior Brayden Joseph, junior Kwame Parker and junior Harry Swindal.
Nicodin and junior Nick Cappello are the most experienced arms returning to the bump. Nicodin was 4-1 with a 0.53 earned-run average and fanned 35 batters over 26.2 innings in 2021. Cappello was 3-1 with a 3.36 ERA while striking out 39 batters in 33.1 innings.
Nicodin and Cappello picked up victories in the Sandlapper Classic along with Hunter Gomes. They struck out 14 batters in 14.2 innings while allowing just five hits and one earned run.
Mitchell, a College of Charleston commit, is back on the mound after coming on strong at the end of last season. He was called up from junior varsity and threw 12 innings, going 1-1 with a 2.92 ERA and one save. He fanned 15 batters and picked up a clutch victory over Bishop England in the region championship game.
Patel and Nichols are capable arms out of the pen who could also draw some starts. Junior Jacob Collins, junior Lucas Brown and senior Max Ballard figure to log some innings, too.
Cappello, junior Mason Brady and junior Joey Smith are the team’s catchers.
