Additional notes

Scarcliffe Campsite offers youngsters the opportunity to experience Back to Basics Scouting with none of the frills and home comforts associated with other campsites. The site has a 20ft portacabin with tables and chairs for eating but cannot be used for accommodation or indoor cooking. There is also a portacabin toilet block with chemical toilets and washing facilities and a storage container with Alter Fires and pioneering poles. Within the site is 2 acres of woodland for wide games and cooking fuel.
