Dunham Park Scout Camp

Details

Description

We are located on National Trust land in tranquil unspoilt countryside, however only 12 miles from Manchester City Centre. Despite our rural location we are accessible to the motorway and public transport links. Situated adjacent to a large deer park, Dunham Massey, the site has numerous secluded sites, suitable for all sizes of camp and we also have two indoor accommodation buildings.
