Squirrels have been added to the website and can be found here:

County Skills Camp 2021

CC Amy Gilbert opened the very successful weekend at Woodhall. Several different activities aimed at teaching new leaders and refreshing current leaders skills.

Woodhall Spa Scout Campsite

We are delighted to let you all know that our campsite is open for bookings to all uniformed/church groups. Sharing the campsite is possible, as long as leaders from both groups are happy to share & are happy with the Covid risk assessment put in place. It has been agreed that if there are 2 groups camping then one group will have use of the girls side and the other group will have use of the boys side with leaders using the accessible toilet. Each group will be responsible for cleaning of their designated toilets and taking turns to clean the accessible toilet. It is recommended that the touch points are cleaned regularly during the day.

Note that the cabin is no longer free of charge to any users. All the up-to-date prices can be found on the campsite page here.

We look forward to welcoming you to our campsite

Camping

Following the change to yellow for Scouting, we can now announce that the campsite is available for Expedition challenge camps and Duke of Edinburgh camps. However, at the current time, you can only book a maximum of 6 campers including adults (as per The Scouts rules) and only the disabled bathroom will be available for use. The cabin is unavailable for booking at the present time. You must undertake to do a thorough clean of the bathroom (cleaning products are provided but you need your own toilet paper)and dispose of your rubbish at the end of your camp.

Further updates will be posted here as we get them.
