COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 has changed the way we do even the simplest things in our every day lives. Here is how it has affected things at Drum Hill and what you can expect when coming to visit the site.

Last Updated: 08.08.2021

PLEASE NOTE Groups must book a minimum of 48hrs in advance.

Information for Groups

This information is available as a PDF download from the Downloads section below. Here are the additional measures we have implemented to comply with the current UK Government restrictions and guidance on re-opening as a COVID-19 secure site:

  • Advanced booking (minimum of 48hrs) is mandatory
  • Group leaders must arrive early, to be on site to meet their group. Young people who arrive early must wait in cars until a group leader arrives
  • Groups must congregate in the top car park, in the allocated area
  • Parents are to remain in the car park, and not come onto the campsite.
  • Dogs are still not allowed anywhere on site, except for service dogs.
  • Groups must stick to the allocated area (marked on the map in your welcome pack) during your stay on site as much as possible
  • Groups must provide their own hand sanitiser
  • Social distancing must be observed when using the toilet blocks

We have put up additional signage around the site, as a reminder of these additional measures.
