Looking for something different for your next venture?

Belchamps Scout Centre opened in 1936, with the aim to provide young people with Scouting, Guiding and others with outdoor experiences. Since then Scouting and Guiding have grown massively, and the site has enjoyed many years of creating lasting memories for young people from all walks of life. Over the years the site has hosted all kinds of youth charities and organizations, taking part in our adventurous activities, or simply experiencing camping in the countryside for the first time.

Belchamps Scout Activity Centre offers 30 acres of fantastic camping fields set in beautiful Essex countryside. We also have five high-quality indoor accommodations and a large range of activities for young people of all ages.

Whether you are looking for a full residential experience or just a day visit, all of our staff will ensure that your event is safe, excellent value for money and full of fun.


There are over 50 on-site activities so there’s always something to do at Belchamps. We have something for all ages and abilities and we endeavor to make sure that no one is left out of the fun – from an adrenaline-fuelled Leap of Faith to a fascinating session of Pond Dipping.

We have 5 high-quality buildings, each providing a fully equipped kitchen. Also available are Camp Fox and Camp Squirrel, our two tented villages. Click here to view our accommodation.


We have room for up to 2000 people camping across the 20 different camping fields. If you have a large enough event, exclusive use of the site can be booked. Click here to view a map of Belchamps.
