Swanley District Scouts

Campsite Rules 

The Rules of Scouting are the Rules of the camp. 


The site has two Dene holes, these are fenced and secured. If you are not familiar with Dene holes please ask the warden.  
Cars may be parked on site, but only in designated areas. Ensure your vehicles are locked. We recommend that the gates are kept shut, and locked at night. The gates MUST be locked before leaving the site unattended, and at the end of your camp.  
The nearest phone is about a mile away, so we recommend that a mobile phone is taken if possible, for use in case of emergency.


DO NOT CUT STANDING TIMBER, even dead wood. The site is a designated SSSI and fines can be imposed on people breaking the rules, if in doubt ask. Also remember that the site does not stretch onto the Nature Reserve, and wood must not be removed from this area.  Ensure all wood piles and cutting circles are safe.  


Please do not climb over the fences, or remove the fence posts. This is particularly dangerous around the Dene hole, which you must keep campers away from.


Please keep the toilets clean and tidy, and check them at least once each day. Cleaning materials are available in the wall cupboard. Also ensure that the toilet block is locked before leaving the site.


Drinking water is supplied from within the toilet block.  Do not leave taps running, we are on a metered supply and this can be costly.


Dogs are allowed on site as long as they do not disturb others or stray off the campsite.

Please treat the campsite as you would any other recreational area, and clean up after your dog(s).



Please do not bury litter, or leave it on the site (even in bags).  The area by the toilets is not a rubbish site.  Burn as much rubbish as possible, and take any tins, glass, and other non-burnable litter with you.  Please do a thorough litter sweep before leaving the site.


Please only light fires on established fire circles. Ensure fires are safe before going to bed, and before leaving the site.

Wood is usually in plentiful supply, please only use cut wood or fallen wood. DO NOT CUT STANDING TIMBER.
