Active NAtion


For over a decade we’ve welcomed youth groups who are looking for brilliantly unique outdoor adventures, in the heart of the South Coast!

From jamborees to summer camps, end of season activity days to adventure which build team spirits, or for simply trying something new and fun – our centre has everything you need to enjoy a trip, led by our expert instructors.

Our youth group sessions and programmes inspire young people, increase confidence, develop resilience and build a positive team attitude.

For groups who prefer to run their own programme (known as Self-Staff) and are just looking for venue hire, Woodmill has the perfect facilities and our friendly centre team can offer round-the-clock support to cater for a range of requirements.




Our activities start from £15 per person for a two hour activity session.  Minimum group sizes apply to all activities.



Booking our youth activities couldn't be easier!

You can book an activity only or a fully catered residential for your group of young people. Our full activity guide can be found under 'Woodmill' - pick N mix your booking!

We provide personalised programmes, changing the activities to suit your groups’ needs.  We make sure the level of adventure suits the experience and needs of the individual young people. We can also be flexible on dates, fitting in with your groups scheduling.

Learning, enjoyment and team cohesion are what we’re experts in, but being powered by the national cause-led charity, Active Nation, we want to encourage people to live healthier lives. This includes ‘Active Nutrition’ – inspiring young people into a healthier, yet still scrumptious, balanced diet.

Our full day visits can be catered for with packed lunches and buffets delivered to your group from just £6.99 per person.

Our residential visitors can choose various catering options such as evening BBQ’s, buffets or hot meals made on the campfire can be provided by our local food and beverage caterers and expert camp guides. 

Don’t forget to let our friendly bookings team know of any allergies, intolerances and other dietary requirements. We can accommodate special diets based on on medical or religious grounds, just
let us know when you book.

Our ‘Stoneham Lodge’ is a purpose built, eco-friendly and self sufficient lodge built onsite allowing us to offer accessible toilet, shower, classroom and kitchen facilities within our grounds – perfect for those taking part in water based activities.

If you’re a smaller group or require a little extra transport, we can provide our in-house transportation to provide assistance. For larger groups, our friendly bookings team can also organise coach and bus hire, allowing pick ups and drop offs for you and your groups.

Please speak to a member of our bookings team about transportation, when planning your booking with us.

At Woodmill, we make booking a youth group experience easy!

Our friendly bookings team work closely with you from your very first contact and through to the handover with our instructors – allowing us to deliver a BRILLIANT group trip experience.

1. Our friendly bookings team will chat about your youth group trip requirements. They’ll discuss some basic options with you to allow them to tailor individual learning outcomes – and of course budget. Every group leader will be offered a venue tour beforehand.

2. We’ll then go away and tailor your bespoke youth group booking using the information you’ve given us. This includes details of activities, the prices per child, any fixed-period programmes and your specified dates. We’ll then send across your personalised quotation and arrange a call to discuss and tweak any of the details.

3. Once we’ve got the detail all agreed, and you’re excited for your trip to start, we’ll send your Booking Confirmation.

Finally, just before your trip is due to start, we’ll get back in touch with the group leader to confirm every detail is still as booked, and help answer any final questions. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!
