Arrival Time

Arrival is from 12 pm on Saturday. It may be possible to arrive before then or even to set up camp on Thursday; please discuss this with Guest Services.
Please tell us at least 1 week in advance what time you are arriving and departing. If you are arriving by coach, please call us 15 minutes prior to your arrival so we can prepare for the parking procedure for coaches.

Car Parking and Vehicle Access

On arrival to Belchamps there will be car parking marshals to direct you. Please listen to the marshals and follow instructions correctly.
Under no circumstances are vehicles allowed on to campsites. We offer a free trailer service for large or heavy items but young people’s kit must be walked to the site. Please inform all parents that their children will need to walk to their campsite from the car park.
There is a strict 5mph speed limit on site and we expect everybody to abide by this. There will be a lot of people around, so please drive sensibly and give way to pedestrians.

Signing In

When you have arrived and parked, please head to reception to sign in. Reception is clearly visible from the site entrance, so please take note of its location as you arrive. Once you have registered, you will receive your welcome pack containing your wristbands, final invoice, our site rules and the Wincam badge.



Our address is Belchamps Scout Activity Centre, Holyoak Lane, Hawkwell, Essex, SS5 4JD. A Sat Nav may direct you down Mount Bovers Lane. You should not use this road. Instead, head down Poplars Avenue, turn left onto Woodside Chase and right onto Holyoak Lane.

Parents and Coaches

Please provide every parent who is dropping off young people and/or your coach driver with the relevant information pack.
