Summer Camping 2020

For Summer 2020 only, Frylands Wood is pleased to be open for Scout Leaders and their families to join us for a camping holiday. This is a unique opportunity whilst overnight Scouting bookings are not possible to enjoy our site as a family, check out our facilities for future Scouting trips, or just relax.

Whether you’ve camped with us before or this is your first visit, please ensure you read this page in full regarding the specific details of how to book your stay and the additional safety precautions in place associated with COVID-19 Coronavirus.

What’s on offer?

We are open for Camping for Scout Leaders and their families

Adult members of the Scout Association and their families are welcome to join us for a camping holiday (tents only) in a safe and secure environment whilst also supporting a Scout-owned Centre. 

This is not to be confused with any formal Scouting Activity, where overnight stays are currently not sanctioned by the Scout Association. Campers will be attending as members of the public, and bookings will be strictly for household groups only. 

We will also be offering a range of self-led activities – more details to follow.

Camping will be charged at £5 per person per night.  

COVID 19 Coronavirus Safety

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic, we have a number of measures in place to help keep you and your family safe. We also of course have some additional rules and information which will ensure everyone on site enjoys their stay to its full potential.  

This includes reduced site capacity, enhanced cleaning regimes, various social distancing measures. All of these will be explained to you when you place your booking. 


During your stay we will be operating a mostly ‘contactless’ Reception, where you can reach members of our team by telephone during opening hours. 

When you arrive on site, we will ask you to call us to check in. We will then come and meet you outside (at a safe distance) to ensure you have found your campsite and answer any questions you may have. 

Reception will only be physically open twice per day, for collection of activity equipment or to make any additional payments required. 



To place a booking, click HERE to access our booking form. This will ask you for all the information you need to place a booking.

Once we have received your request, we will place a provisional booking for you and let you know how to pay.

We will require payment in full prior to arrival, either by electronic bank transfer, or by credit/debit card. 

Bookings will only be confirmed on receipt of full payment and proof of Scout Association Membership.

Please note that bookings will not be confirmed until we have received payment and a screenshot of your Compass membership summary page.
