Started in 1927, Drum Hill Scout Camp is now the county campsite for Derbyshire Scouts.

Day and Evening Visits

The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed the way that Scouting and Guiding can be done and many of the things that we have taken as being a normal part of a section programme are now difficult. If you need an open space for an evening or day visit to bring your group back togehter, we've got 80 acres for you to choose from.
