Started in 1927, Drum Hill Scout Camp is now the county campsite for Derbyshire Scouts. Over the years, the site has seen many changes and now boasts more than 80 acres of mixed woodland and camping fields, three residential buildings and many activities on site to make your residential experience with us as exciting and enjoyable as possible.

   Although the campsite is open, there are still additional measures in place to prevent further spread or outbreak of COVID-19. This also affects which activities and facilities are available. Please CLICK HERE for details.
