Hollygate Scout Camp

Hollygate Scout Camp is situated in beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside about 6km southeast of Nottingham. The site is a mixture of woodland and flat grassed camping areas that are suitable for all kinds of Scout (and Guide) camping. Facilities on the site are limited, we do not have a hall or kitchen, but we do have a very good quality toilet and shower block.

This is not a site with lots of organised activities but a base to do traditional outdoors Scouting combined with a location second to none.

The site is adjacent to a country park at Cotgrave featuring miles of cycle tracks, a renovated stretch of the Grantham Canal and childrens' play area and a fishing lake.


With today's announcement by the Scout Association that Scouting has now moved to "Green" we can confirm that the site is fully open and all facilities are back in use. We will retain for now some mitigation measures to limit risks; mainly around cleaning and ventilation in the toilet/shower block, cleaning of equipment, and advice around large gatherings of people. Details of this measures are set out in the documents mentioned below.

Documents setting out the booking procedures, user procedures, risk assessments etc are available on the "documents" page.


With the 5th November not too far away we advise all site users of the site policies around fireworks etc.

Users are also reminded that they must have an appropriate risk assessment for this (and any other) activity on the site.
