There are three camping fields on Drum Hill; The Scout Field, The Cub Field and The Training Field giving us camping space for over 1000 people at any one time. There are water points available within easy reach of every camping pitch, and other facilities may be available upon request.
We have a purpose built flag break area, plus a chapel area for use if required.
The campsite providore stocks souvenirs, badges, sweets, chocolate and a few basic essentials.
For those wishing to undertake more traditional scouting activities, such as backwoods cooking or campfires, we have alter fires on all fields. We also have a set of woodland stoves available for use on the Scout Field.
For those feeling a little more adventurous, our Training Field offers the perfect setting for shelter building and bushcraft skills.
