About Marchants Hill

Marchants Hill activity adventure camp is on the outskirts of London but once you're there you'll feel you're in the middle of the countryside.

There's plenty of space in the 45 acres of grounds for your Brownies and Guides to enjoy, and a fantastic range of thriling adventure activities to get them working as a team and having fun. There's a lake for watersports such as raft building, and opportunities to explore the surrounding countryside of the Devil's Punchbowl.

The supervised evening entertainment programmes include campfire, but if you prefer, you can use our facilities to create your own session: the choice is yours.

Accommodation is all en suite in lodges within the centre grounds, which are secured and patrolled every night for your peace of mind.

Extra healthy or extra food?
Whether your Brownies & Guides are passionate about healthy eating or just need that little extra bit of re-fuelling, we have a fantastic self-service salad bar that offers a great range of delicious salad choices. We also have tasty, homemade soup for them to try and plenty of fresh fruit that they can take with them to keep them going between activity sessions.

If after all that, they still would like a little more, just ask one of our friendly catering team and we’ll be happy to provide extra food.
