    Further Details

    Burst outside the classroom with Scout Activity centres.  Following consultation with a wide range of professionals in education and engagement with Learning Outside the Classroom, we’ve created a range of brilliant residential adventure experiences that provide powerful learning opportunities for young people of all ages and abilities, as well as having an impact on teachers and schools as a whole.  Experiences are competitively priced, easy to book and link to the National Curriculum.  

    Choose from:

    Original Outdoor Experience - for pupils to learn tangible skills, to take responsibility and work collaboratively, staying in campsite based accommodation.  

    Outdoor Adventure - a balanced but busy programme of activities that gives every pupil the chance to discover new challenges with the convenience of fully catered indoor accommodation in purpose-built lodges or comfortable camping in our new tented villages.

    Adventure 50:50 - for teachers to run a large part of their own programme, with their own content, whilst benefiting from our range of locations, facilities and activities with fully catered indoor accommodation in purpose-built lodges or comfortable camping in our new tented villages. 

    Gilwell Park Scout Activity Centre, situated on the London-Essex border on the edge of Epping Forest, offers 108 acres of beautiful woodland, amazing activities, lodges and camping.

    Less than 25 minutes by train from central London and just 8 minutes' drive from the M25, the location of Gilwell Park means that the great outdoors, and a great adventure, is within easy reach of the capital and beyond.

    Gilwell Park features over 35 activities on site, from adventurous high adrenaline experiences such as Jacob’s ladder to more traditional pursuits such as backwoods cooking and shelter building. Many of our activities are suitable for ages 6 to adult, and our experienced team on centre will work with you to ensure your time with us is fully tailored to your pupil’s abilities and your overall objectives. A new tented village will open in May 2015!

    Gilwell Park has been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge.  This accreditation is a mark of quality for the centre’s provision in outdoor activities, covering both learning and safety.  Alongside the LOtC Quality Badge, our centres are also Adventuremark holders, confirming they operate with excellent safety standards.
