Info

 

All of our bookings are taken online, you can book buildings, campsites, activities etc all in one booking.

We use Online Scout Manager Venue Booking, there are some top tips below for you, with two routes to book, depending on whether you are an existing user of Online Scout Manager (OSM) within scouting or not.

 

NON-SCOUT OSM USERS

This is for our clients who may be schools or colleges, DofE expeditions, or scouters who don't use OSM.

Please use this link to access our booking system via our external portal - www.onlinescoutmanager.co.uk/v/bushywood 

TOP TIPS

  • When you are on the external portal and click to book you will be taken into OSM, you can create an acount there which you can use for all future bookings
  • You can book buildings, campsites, activities, arena, campfire circle, extras etc all within ONE booking, just keep adding extra items to that one booking for that event
  • There are no discount codes anymore, all prices are calculated automatically from the organisation type you selected
  • If you book an overnight (which now start at 1600), and wish to stay for the day beforehand, make sure you book the day session as well!

 

SCOUTING OSM USERS

Welcome to the world of much easier campsite bookings!

You just need to follow these steps;

2. Enter that programme or event, and look for the 'Venue Bookings' link in the menu for that item

3. Select Bushy Wood as the venue, and follow the steps to book for that item

EVERYONE - MIGRATING EXISTING 2020 / 2021 BOOKINGS

If you would like to see your existing bookings, which have all been transferred across to OSM for you, we can arrange this as below, please don't do this IF YOU HAVE ALREADY MADE A BOOKING ON OUR NEW OSM BOOKING SYSTEM, (and having an existing OSM account is not enough, we need you to make a test venue booking so we can see you as a new customer).

1. Use either route above to make a 'test' booking (OSM scouters you can make a test programme/event in OSM and delete it afterwards)

2. Select any date in March/April 2020

3. Select the item 'Migrate Me', which is right at the bottom of the list of items you can book

4. Select an hour timeslot on the day you have chosen (please don't leave it as the whole day which is default)

5. We'll spot your booking and will migrate your existing bookings to your new account (this may take a few days)
