Welcome To Stanford Scout Camp Site

This is the home page of Stanford Scout camp site.  

The site is not for use by the general public and all bookings must be made in advance

On this page we hope you find useful information to assist you in your stay or whether you choose to camp with us.

The 28 acre camp site is located in Pease Pottage, in what was Pease Pottage Forest. 

It is a heavily wooded area and ideal for standing camps as well as survival camps or shelter building. 

Shower and flushing toilets are on site as well as a well appointed Training Centre with catering facilities. The site also has disabled toilets in the training centre and on site and parts of the site are wheelchair accessible. Please contact for further details

The site has good communication links being at the last junction of the M23, as well as being close to bus services and mainline train stations. Gatwick Airport is situated to the north making the site easily accessible to international visitors.

The site is available for Camping 365 days a year.

Although we do cater for Scout and Guide Groups, we are happy to consider applications from other youth groups, charities or businesses wishing to use the facilities.

The site is not open to the general public:

One significant change is in and around the main hut we have BT wifi access and our new upgraded toilet block with disabled facilities is now open.  The Chapel has had significant work done to it and now has fencing surrouding it, memorial benches on raised decking, planters and new turf.
