Hollygate Scout Camp

Hollygate Scout Camp is situated in beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside about 6km southeast of Nottingham. The site is a mixture of woodland and flat grassed camping areas that are suitable for all kinds of Scout (and Guide) camping. Facilities on the site are limited, we do not have a hall or kitchen, but we do have a very good quality toilet and shower block.

This is not a site with lots of organised activities but a base to do traditional outdoors Scouting combined with a location second to none.

The site is adjacent to a country park at Cotgrave featuring miles of cycle tracks, a renovated stretch of the Grantham Canal and childrens' play area and a fishing lake.





Close to Hollygate. Available for hire to charity, voluntary & community groups, a 17 seater minibus (and two trailers). Cost recovery only hire rates. Fully insured.

Things have quietened on the site; most (but not all) camping bookings are done, we still have a lot of evening use by local groups for games, cooking etc.


We are looking at what jobs need to be done to maintain/improve the site over the winter - if you've any thoughts on this please let us know.


It has been almost impossible to find instructors for climbing wall sessions over the last several months, because of this we will no longer be taking bookings for the climbing wall.


There are only 3 archery instructors in the District who hold current permits so we are limited in the number of archery sessions we can run; we will endeavour to provide archery sessions for those that want them, but in busy periods this may not always be possible.


Major events have been booked for 2018 that will close the site to other users:

10th-12th August - Wedding

24th-27th August - Family Festival

We are unlikely to accept any further bookings of this nature for 2018 (unless they are mid week only).
