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 rates only. Fully insured.

ScoutBus.co.uk

We have a large programme of work to maintain and improve the site and we think we may need several winter workdays to complete it all. The planned dates are:


Saturday 3rd February : Sunday 4th February : Saturday 24th February : Sunday 25th February

(exact timings are subject to weather conditions on the day and on progress with the tasks in hand)


If the weather stays good and we get plenty of help we are unlikely to need all of these dates.


Main jobs for this year (in no particular order) include: laying more stone to track, entrance and compound; repairing the pole store; roofing a couple of the containers; painting; and some bridge repairs.


If you have any ideas for further work that you would like to see carried out to improve the site please let us know asap; we can then think about whether we can include your suggestion in this round of works.


An email will be sent out early in January inviting all Leaders/adults in the District to turn up and help on these dates. The email will provide all of the above information and more, if you want some more information in the meantime pleae get in touch.


Climbing Wall

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.

Archery

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.

2018 Bookings

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).
