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 Isle of Palms, 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 Isle of Palms 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 Isle of Palms, 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 Isle of Palms, 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 Isle of Palms, 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.

CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – A shuttle aimed at making trips to the Isle of Palms a little easier will return this summer.
The Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) announced on Wednesday that its free park-and-ride shuttle, known as the Beach Reach Shuttle, will begin operation on May 28 through the Labor Day weekend.
Those looking to hop a ride to the beach can board the shuttle at stop No. 715, located behind the Belk Men’s store in Mount Pleasant Towne Centre, and disembark at 14th Avenue and Ocean Boulevard, adjacent to the Isle of Palms beach access.
The shuttle will run every half-hour from 9:15 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. on Saturdays and every hour from 9:40 a.m. until 5:55 p.m. on Sundays. Riders should plan to arrive at least five minutes prior to the scheduled departure time.
Parking will be available along Market Center Boulevard in Mount Pleasant Towne Centre. Connections to Route 40 Mount Pleasant and Route 42 Wando Circulator will also be available.
“Now in its second year, we’re proud to announce the highly anticipated return of the Beach Reach Shuttle,” said Isle of Palms Mayor Philip Pounds. “This has been a team effort in the truest sense of the term, and we’re glad to be working alongside our remarkable partners to increase beach access and share the beauty of the Isle of Palms shoreline this summer.”
“The Town of Mount Pleasant is proud to stand alongside CARTA, Isle of Palms, and our very own Towne Centre to bring the Beach Reach Shuttle back into service,” said Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie. “I hope folks throughout our community and beyond will join us in taking advantage of this exciting opportunity to make the most of this summer.”
Rules of the ride: In order to maintain the safety of all riders and provide adequate space for those on board, Beach Reach passengers must adhere to the policies which are outlined below.
Riders found to be in violation of any of the aforementioned policies may not be permitted onboard the shuttle.
Full route details and bus tracking can be found in the Transit App, which is available for download in the Apple and Google Play stores. Riders can also view traffic conditions and municipal information for all area beaches via the Beach Reach app, which is also available for Apple and Google smartphones.

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCIV) — Isle of Palms City Council held a special meeting Thursday to review the lease of the marina.
The debate: whether beer and wine can be sold and consumed at the marina.
Some say this wouldn't be an issue because people already drink beer by the marina and it hasn't caused any trouble. However, others believe allowing beer and wine could cause concern for parents.
"It seems like every time we amend this lease, we give more to the tenant and take away from the city," said councilmember Katie Miars.
Miars is hesitant about the current lease agreement. She worries selling beer and wine could change the family friendly environment the marina holds.
"Granted, some people have a beer on the back - just like some people are going to have a beer on the beach, but when you make it legal - it becomes different," Miars said.
Still, others say they don't see a problem with allowing beer and wine.
"I do not see where this has to be that big of an issue, by allowing someone to sit there with a sandwich a fish basket, and have a beer with it, and being able to walk away satisfied," said councilman Rusty Streetman.
That's because many people say they already see beer consumption along the marina.
"So I do not personally see the issue on this is going to explode because this has been happening for the past 25 years and I have not seen this explode," said councilman Blair Hahn.
Neighbors say they just want clarity.
"The problem is the conversations have been with the restaurant, the marina store, and the council, and as a resident there has been no information," said Christine Donaven, an IOP resident.
The CEO of Coastal Marinas, Mike Schuler, is hoping to enter into this lease agreement with Isle of Palms. His goal is to cater to the community.
"In fact, we have gone to great lengths to ensure self imposed limitations on any consumption of alcohol on the premise, in what I think is a very reasonable way," Schuler said.
Some of Coastal Marina's plans include giving Isle of Palms residents better access to water, including free parking, priority access to slips, and upgrading retail offerings and operations along the marina.

Today, after almost two decades since their last release, Carolina’s favorite rock and rollers the Blue Dogs are back in the game with the release of a brand new full-length album, Big Dreamers. Produced by accomplished guitarist and longtime Blue Dogs fan—and at times, guitar player—Sadler Vaden (Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit), Big Dreamers marks a long-awaited comeback for the band and an inevitable full-circle moment for their producer. “I have a history with these guys,” Vaden says. “They used to hire me when I was 18 or 19 years old to play with them.” Vaden isn’t the only fan of Blue Dogs contributing to Big Dreamers, legendary Texas songwriter Radney Foster sings background vocals on “That’s How I Knew,” which he co-wrote with Bobby Houck along with the greasy, mid-tempo “If Ever,” and dobro master Jerry Douglas joined the boys on the bluegrass-inspired “The Road You Don’t.”
This week Folk N Rock premiered the music video for “Big Dreamers” and Relix Magazine shared a full album first listen of Big Dreamers. Fans can now stream or purchase Big Dreamers in its entirety at this link. The Blue Dogs are celebrating the release of Big Dreamers with a performance (June 3rd) at The Windjammer in Isle of Palms, South Carolina. Tickets are still available at this link.
More About Blue Dogs and Big Dreamers: Founded in 1987 and based in Charleston, the group is still led by songwriters Hank Futch (bass) and Bobby Houck (lead singer, acoustic guitar), who grew up together in Florence, South Carolina. ??After nearly two decades on the road, the Blue Dogs took an extended break from touring in 2007 as Futch and Houck accepted jobs outside of music to support their new families. Yet they both filed away occasional phrases and potential titles, just in case they ever had a chance to make another album together. For this project they were joined in the studio by guitarist Dan Hood, steel guitar player Charlie Thompson, and longtime drummer Greg Walker. Keeping it all in one big Blue Dogs family, former member Phillip Lammonds co-wrote three of the new songs.
“We’re doing this to follow that dream of playing music and sharing our sound with whoever wants to listen,” Futch says. “We’ve probably been Americana before that became a term. But we didn’t feel like we had to be anything other than ourselves to write these songs.” Houck adds, “We still have something to say. We can write good songs that we like, knowing other people will like them too. We’ve got a lot more to do, more places to play, and maybe bigger places to play. Because of this album, we get to live this dream longer than we thought.”

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCBD) – National Safe Boating Week kicks off on Saturday, and Lowcountry officials are sharing tips to keep in mind before heading out on the water.
According to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, there were 201 reported boating accidents and 21 boat fatalities in 2021.
Captain Michael Paul Thomas said to always check the boat’s safety equipment like the fire extinguisher. Make sure there are enough life jackets for everyone onboard and that they fit.
“Make sure that they are proper size, that they aren’t worn out. They may have been sitting up all winter. Make sure that they are serviceable,” said Thomas.
Another tip from Thomas – boaters should let friends and family know when they plan on returning from a boating trip, so they can call for help if the deadline is not met.
Thomas recommends the driver wears a kill switch to cut off power if they fall off the boat.
Officials are stressing the importance of sober boating. They said to always have a designated driver.
With more than 339,000 registered boats last year, officials said its important to be responsible on the water.
According to DNR, there have been 49 reported boat accidents this year. One of those involved 18-year-old Logan Wood.
Wood’s family knows all too well what it’s like to lose someone in a boating accident. The teen went missing back in January when he was out boating. His body was recovered a month later.
“As much as it hurts to have him gone, at least he was doing something he loved when it happened,” said close family friend Kimberly Ambrose.
On Saturday, his family is holding a memorial fishing tournament on what would’ve been his 19th birthday. The goal of the event is to raise money to buy safety equipment for other boaters in hopes of preventing this tragedy from happening again.
“You want take something terrible and make it positive. This is a way, in his name, we can honor him and bring everyone else’s family members home,” said Ambrose.
DNR is hosting several upcoming courtesy boat inspections. Click here for more information.
