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 been a busy summer but the site is looking good and we've still got bookings every weekend for the next couple of months. Now that the new term has begun and the weather is holding we are also getting a number of evening bookings - please remember to give us reasonable notice if you want to use the site during the week - we're volunteers too!

Archery - two site staff have obtained permits under the new scheme, we are unaware of anyone else in the District having obtained permits. We can run sessions (weather permitting) but with only two of us we can't do many. The site's archery equipment is available for others in the District to use (at a cost of £20 per hour) but only after we have seen an appropriate permit held by someone running the session.

Lots of general maintenance work being carried out; improvements to the track, grass cutting, adding to the woodpile etc. Let us know if you think of anything that might improve the site for users.

Winter working weekends are being considered - watch this space.

Major events have been booked for 2017 that will close the site to other users:

28th April - 1st May - Rushcliffe District Camp

7th - 9th July - Charnwood District Beavers 1 to 1 Camp

18th-20th August - Wedding
