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.

It's getting pretty quiet on the site now, more wildlife than campers! We've put up a wildlife camera and if we get any interesting sitings we'll post them on here.


Lots of general maintenance work being carried out; improvements to the track, grass cutting, adding to the woodpile etc.


We are beginning to look at plans for work over the winter, we may well be looking for help on a workday or two watch out for our announcements. First thoughts for work to be done include:



If anyone has any bright ideas about what could be done to improve the site please let us know - we don't promise to do them, but we will consider them.
