Woodhall Spa Campsite

Hello all.

Firstly, we would like to say thank you to all the young people and parents who have been taking part in scouting activities in an alternative way; whether that is online using zoom or teams or by completing tasks at home. You’ve been amazing!! We also thank all the leaders and supporters of Scouts – throughout this pandemic, you have been stars.

Secondly, unfortunately the campsite is not available for hire by any groups outside of Boston District at the current time (for evening or day visits). As soon as this changes, we will put an update here.

GOOD NEWS – BOSTON DISTRICT ONLY!! We have a covid RA approved for the campsite at Woodhall. Sessions can be booked on the website. There are conditions to using the site as follows:

  1. The site can only be used when we are in Amber or above, currently from 29 March.  BE AWARE THIS MAY CHANGE INLINE WITH THE SCOUTS AND GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES
  2. No camping is allowed.
  3. Cabin is unavailable. 
  4. Only the disabled bathroom to be used – others will be kept locked.
  5. Groups undertake to clean the disabled bathroom after the event with products provided. (These will be on a shelf in the bathroom) Includes mopping the floor, spraying/wiping of all touchpoints, toilet, seat and handle as well as the rail outside.
  6. Groups should remember that they need to add Woodhall as a new venue on their Group/Section Covid risk assessment which needs to be approved.
  7. Groups should also remember that each activity needs a written risk assessment (does NOT need approving).
  8. Groups follow guidance from The Scouts re: maximum numbers and time allowed for the group (29 March – maximum of 15 young people/5 adults and young leaders combined or the YL takes the place of a young person).
  9. If you wish to use the site for more than one group, remember that each group must be 25m apart. 
  10. If you split your group into smaller groups so that they are meeting at different times eg group 1 meets 5-6pm and group 2 follows, then you must allow time for cleaning the bathroom and any equipment you use between sessions.
  11. Any group using Woodhall campsite should remember that they need to complete a one day notification form and send to ADC & GSL even if it’s their usual meeting night.
