Jordan Heights Scout Campsite

Details

Description

Jordan Heights is a secluded campsite near Reigate. During World War 2 it was used to house an army pigeon loft. Reigate District Scouts took over the lease of the campsite from the National Trust on the 1st November 2011. Jordan Heights is on the wooded slope of Reigate Hill, within easy access of Junction 8 of the M25. Access is via a bridle way and a zig zag path with steps. It is well suited for camps of up to 40 persons. The site is on three levels with a large hut known as Doreen's Lodge on the main camping level. If you want to be a backwoodsman or camp in the traditional way, this is the place for you. Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer, Network and Leaders will love it.
