Information for Parents\Guardians

We appreciate that sending your son or daughter away to camp can be a stressful thing for a parent or guardian. Although your group will be able to provide you with specific information about equipment and any transport arrangements (eg, if your group has a mini-bus), here are a few general bits and pieces of information from us.

Arrivals and Departures

The campsite address is:
Drum Hill Scout Camp
Morley Lane
Little Eaton
DE21 5AH

For those using What3Words, the "address" for the entrance to site is: saves.strain.paper

Our post code should work in most modern sat navs.

To help with the traffic flow, and so that we do not completely conjest the surrounding villages too much, we ask that everyone arrives onto the site along Morley Lane from the Little Eaton village end, parks in the "GREEN" car park (indicated on the map below) and leaves site along Morley Lane, observing the left-turn only signs, towards Breadsall Village. Please note, these parking arrangements are only in place on Friday evening and Monday afternoon (for arrivals and departures). If you need to come to site during the camp for any reason, please just follow the instructions of the Site Safety team when you arrive.

Lost Property

Approximately 1200 - 1300 young people attend Spring Bank Camp every year... this typically generates around 200-300 items of lost property over the weekend. Everything from Drinks Bottles to Wallets. We try as much as we can to return these to their owners during the weekend, but there is always a massive amount of stuff left in the reception at the end of camp. It would therefore help us enormously if you could make sure that everything has your child's name on it.

No Dogs

Unfortunately, we have had problems with people bringing dogs onto site before, and have therefore had to implement a general ban on bringing dogs onto site, with the obvious exception for service dogs.
