About Marchants Hill

For an outdoor adventure camp close to London, but with an away-from-it-all feel, Marchants Hill is the perfect setting. Your Cubs and Scouts will discover a whole range of exciting adventure activities in the spacious centre grounds including the Powerfan, Jacob’s ladder and a purpose-built lake for raft building. With 45 acres of grounds, your group will have plenty of space to relax and run around in and the nearby Devil’s Punchbowl offers more space to discover.

Facilities at Marchants Hill include a sports hall, games room and indoor activity areas for evening entertainment sessions supervised by our centre team.

Accommodation is provided in custom-built lodges in the centre grounds and is en suite throughout for group members and leaders. Additional accommodation is in Bethany House, a converted convent building in the grounds.
