Take a look at what some teachers & parents have said about their time in the forest. It’s always good to hear it straight from the horses mouth (…and we’re proud to say it’s totally unedited!)
Notre Dame School - Cobham
‘As a head teacher I went to Campaign to inspect on the recommendation of another school for an end of term activity. I have little experience of what to look for at a Paintball site apart from Health and Safety and whether the punters were enjoying themselves. On arrival I was greeted by two staff with a friendly wave and taken to meet the owners.
Fortunately, there were several schools arriving as well as groups of adults.
It appears Campaign has been owned by the same guys for over 20 years. The site is vast and what I saw totally reassured me. Interestingly, the first
school to be briefed was a school that I knew really well having worked there
many years ago so I was able to speak to the pupils and teachers as the morning went on.
They liked the equipment, the variety of themed areas and the banter of the
marshals. Some games were extremely tactical and serious stuff. It was obvious the adrenalin was flowing and every pupil I spoke to was fully engaged and loving it. Lunch was also provided in the price. Most groups I spoke to had been before, and this backed up what the owners said about repeat business and making the experience bespoke for ‘their customers’.
In conclusion a well run operation, clear instructions, heavy focus on safety and efficient friendly staff.
I intend to arrange a school trip and also take a large group of dads (and daughters) to Campaign very soon.’

Hill House School - London SW1
‘Campaign Paintball was an absolutely fantasic venue for my son Shackleton’s 8th birthday party. With the help of Jim Sennett from Campaign we were able to organise 25 boys and girls (8 year olds) to travel down from London to Campaign’s forest paintball park where the children ran and shot and let off steam. All essential safety equipment, paintball guns and the actual paintballs were specially tailored for 8 year olds. When you are responsible for 25 kids who aren’t yours this is essential! The kids laughed and played with the odd break for refreshments, for 4 hours! The girls were surprisingly game on too. Great selection of areas from replica wildwest towns to military grounds and a shooting range. BBQ provided only needed to bring a cake. All the way home the girls and boys were running up saying “that’s the best party I’ve ever been too” – we’ll be back for sure.’

‘Just a quick note to say thank you for last weekend. We were well looked after excellently and had a great day. The emphasis was just right with safety being paramount on the day and this was explained and reminded with skill and patience on the day.
It was a fantastic day out, the boys enjoyed it very much and I’m sure we will be back. Hopefully when its a little dryer under foot ! Based on our experience I would have no hesitation in recommending Campaign to any organisations similar to ourselves wanting a team building / bonding exercise day out.’
‘We had a fantastic time, thank you all very much. It’s now Cricket, Rugby and paintballing!’
Eaton House School - Clapham
St Andrew's School
“We couldn’t have asked for a better day. For the third year running we took our current Year 11s and Y12s (about to become our Sixth Form) along with some staff for a team-building exercise. The combination of great games, fantastic organisation, a brilliant landscape and effective, strict safety instructions made the day a safe and unforgettable one, especially as the staff won the day!
We would like to thank all the staff, particularly the Marshalls, for their encouragement throughout the games and during the breaks. They were continuously checking on the welfare of all around.
We’ll definitely be back again next year and I have already recommended you to friends.”
Hampton Boys School
I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the staff at Campaign Paintball on Saturday. From the arrival in the car park to the welcome as we entered the threshold to get our protective gear to the place where we got our goggles and equipment, etc, everyone was lovely, helpful and courteous.
Our team leader for the green and orange teams was very good, positive outlook about having fun, while also being very good about safety at all times. He made the day extra fun with his good management of all these children with guns in their hands! He handled questions effectively and did not let things get out of control which was great. He and his assistant were out on the field during play and actively managing the situation. Very well done!
So all in all, a great day made even better by the staff.
ACS - Cobham
We would just like to say a huge thank you for the wonderful party that we had on Sunday for our son Harrys 10th Birthday.
The team that organised the games were absolutely fantastic, all very polite and very helpful and above all were spot on with the safety of the children. If you could please pass on our thanks to them for making it such a wonderful day for us all.
This is definitely something that we will be doing again, and also will be letting people know what a great time we had.
Parkside School - Cobham
“…After to coming to Campaign every year for the last 10 years or so, I would just like to say thank you for another great day.. you guys just get better and better. Hope to see you again in the Autumn”
Reeds School - Cobham
Another fantastic day, the pupils as always loved it! – Thank you and see you again soon.
Just a quick note to thank you all for a smashing afternoon yesterday for Olivia’s 14th birthday. The girls really enjoyed themselves and had great – and very safe – time.
Jake and Doug were absolutely terrific with the girls – firm but never heavy-handed, impeccably safety conscious at all times without ever being overbearing, supportive but never patronising. They got every communication and tone exactly right for a group of 14 year old girls – I could learn a few things from them!
Right from the very first contact, you’ve all been so helpful, so courteous and so understanding and flexible about the challenges (for the host) of getting everyone organised and confirming numbers etc.
Thank you for looking after us all so well, for a smashing party for our daughter and for plenty of coffee for David and I. We hope to make a return trip very soon.
All the very best to you all.

‘This must be our 9th trip to Campaign and as always you gave the pupils and staff a fantastic time…thanks to all concerned and see you next time’
