The Beginning

Belchamps Scout Centre opened in 1936 with the Declaration of Trust/Trust Deed completed 16th May 1936, the site was purchased for the sum of £1936 by the Southend-on-Sea and District Boy Scouts Association.

 

Essex Jamboree

One of the events we are very proud to have been part of is Essex Jamboree, 1949 Belchamps hosted the 3rd Essex Jamboree in 1949 this was the first time it became the Essex International Jamboree, our international Scouts were offered home hospitality after the event. , then every 4 years up to the 9th (1949-1980). Our site is 20 1/2 acres, EIJ being such a great event it became to big for the campsite. Thank you to Peter Brady who let us make images from his amazing collection of scout memorabilia.
