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
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.
We are well into our busy period; every weekend sees many campers on site and lots
of mid-week use by local Groups (don't forget to give us plenty of notice if you
want to make use of the site on these warm and light evenings!).
For the first year since we opened the busy period extends right through August;
we still have space for a few camps in July and August, but we are getting close
to capacity on a couple of weekends.
We are having significant problems finding instructors for the climbing wall & archery;
please be aware that we may not be able to meet requests to use these facilities.
Major events have been booked for 2017 that will close the site to other users:
7th - 9th July - Charnwood District Beavers 1 to 1 Camp
