"A Scout is never taken by surprise; he knows exactly what to do when anything unexpected happens."
Sir Robert Baden-Powell
"Life is about grabbing opportunities. The prizes don’t always go to the biggest, the best and the strongest – they go to those who persevere."
Bear Gyrlls, Chief Scout
"So much of who we are as an adult is formed when we are kids, what Scouting says to people is: it’s okay to go for it in life."

Attractive Camping Areas

If you’d like a night under canvas, we have lots of choices available. Our Windy camping area is suitable for large parties of up to 150, but if you’d prefer a more compact site, you might like our Uttoxeter or Top Field areas. In addition to these camping areas, we also have plenty of other camping options available onsite.

Shower and Toilet Facilities

At the far side of the scout camp and adjacent to Pointon Cabin, campers can access a purpose-built toilet and shower facility. We also have a second toilet and shower block on the drive between the Windy House and Uttoxeter camping sites. All shower and washing facilities are free to use, with water points available throughout the camp.

Camp Fires

Visitors can enjoy a traditional camp fire circle on the Uttoxeter site and on the activity field behind the Gibson Building. But if you’re going to enjoy a traditional camp fire, we insist you follow our fire regulations (insert link to FAQ page). We also have an open air chapel for use by visiting groups. 2018 Camping fees Scouts & Guides £4.00 per person per night Non Scouting groups £5 per person per night
