Our Camp in the beautiful Shropshire hills is a registered charity offering camping and bunkhouse accommodation for young people. We let the Camp at modest rates to supervised groups including Scouts, Girl Guides and DOE.
That income, supported by donations, helps us to provide free country breaks to deserving children's groups and to maintain and develop the Camp.
Imagine waking up on a fine morning. There are trees and hills outside your tent or bunkhouse door. You can hear birds singing, see sheep grazing and smell breakfast cooking nearby.
With your friends and group leaders, you have an amazing space all to yourselves. You’re free - to play games, learn crafts or explore the glorious countryside beyond the Camp gate.
The Camp offers a traditional bunkhouse/camping experience, which visitors say they love. Our woodland site (1.75 acres) has large grassy spaces for games or pitching 30 two-person tents. There’s a 22 metre Hall (for meeting, eating and relaxing) with staff/storage rooms and a catering-standard kitchen.
We have 7 bunkhouses sleeping 36 (including a wheelchair-friendly unit) and male/female showers and WC’s. Around the Hall there are picnic tables and ample hard parking space. Solar panels heat water from our own source.
The Camp receives no regular funding from public authorities. So we depend on the generosity of volunteers and donors.
As volunteers, we need enthusiasts with business, IT, social media or DIY skills to give their time and expertise.
As a donor, you can give a holiday to a deserving child who might otherwise go without - and help to secure the Camp’s future.
