Covid-19 Update

Belchamps Scout Activity Center has suspending all activity until further notice. The office and shop will not be open, but staff will still be responding to emails and calls during office hours only. This is an ever-changing situation, and we hope to be operational again as soon as possible. 

This sadly means that some event will be postponed. We are hoping to run the events later this year. However, a date cannot be set until we are informed that the current suspension has been lifted.

This also means that all weekend camping and day visits are suspended with immediate effect.

This page and our social media channels will be updated frequently.

So please ensure you check them before contacting us and please bear with us during these most unprecedented of times.
