Activity Centres

We are proud to offer places where young people will find inspiration, adventure, challenges and friendship, all within a safe, supportive and positive environment

Harmergreen Wood

Our “Back to Basics” centre, with glades set in 44 acres of ancient woodland, a simple setting for bivouacking, survival skills and woodcraft – as well as traditional camping.

Located in the beautiful Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, originally built in the 1900s by the Caledonian Railway Company. Now fully restored & converted to provide an adventurous activities base in the Scottish Highlands.

Phasels Wood




Well End


Borehamwood, Hertfordshire


With 5 acres of meadow, a 4 acre enclosed woodland and a focussed range of activities, a great place for Beavers and Cubs to begin their outdoor experiences.

How we manage our centres…

We see running our Centres as a core part of what we do as Hertfordshire Scouts, and we are constantly working to find creative ways to provide even more support for leaders and opportunities for young people.

Our Centres not only contribute directly to the programme, but also make a significant financial contribution each year towards the running of Hertfordshire Scouts.

We want to provide you and your group with a truly inspiring safe but  adventurous experience, every time you visit one of our Centres.​ Our dedicated team are here to offer a warm and friendly welcome and will help create a programme that suits you. We can offer anything from an hour's activity, to a full activity week; whatever you are looking for our ethos is 'together we can do it!'


We are one team and we are #TeamHertfordshire
