Welcome to Bushy Wood Scout Camp & Activity Centre

Bushy Wood is a Scout Camp & Activity Centre located in the heart of rural Sussex, in the south-east of England. 

Sussex has a wonderful mix of city, coast and countryside, whether you fancy enjoying the vibrant city life of Brighton & Hove or are tempted by the thought of exploring historic towns and villages and wide open downland countryside, our county has plenty to offer.

If you want a seaside treat, then the coast is only a short distance away at Eastbourne, where you can visit the pier, take in the considerable leisure facilities, do some shopping, or take a boat trip to see the famous Beachy Head cliffs and lighthouse.

There are an abundance of attractions and activities on offer in the local area or only a short journey away. London, with all that it offers for the visitor, is easily within reach for a day trip, as are the spiritual homes of Scouting, Brownsea Island and Gilwell Park.

Bushy Wood is a 17 acre English woodland campsite and activity centre, situated just off the main A22, adjacent to Hailsham in East Sussex, to see a map click here - Location

We have camping areas and building accommodation available for hire, along with an indoor activity centre, suitable for activities, meetings and training purposes.

Our site is intended for use by the Scout & Guide organisations, but it may also be used by other recognised youth organisations, such as schools, colleges, Princes Trust, DofE etc.

Please browse this site for more information, you can get in touch using the Contact Us page if you have any queries.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bushy Wood Scout Camp & Activity Centre.
