Camping – General Information

John’s Lee Wood is suitable for everything from Beaver sleepovers to group camps and district fun / activity days. We have four cabins of varying size that are available for sleeping & cooking or just as alternative accommodation in case of bad weather when camping under canvas. You are welcome to come and look around, but please arrange your visit with the Bookings Secretary in advance as the site is not always accessible.

We have 24 clearings in the woodland for camping pitches & these vary in size from Patrol camp to Group camp.
The site is owned by the City of Leicester Scout Districts & is open throughout the year, except for Christmas weekend, to most organisations who hold public liability insurance.

The site is staffed by volunteer warden teams on an eight week rota system with a separate team of volunteers to staff the providore & another team of retired staff who work on the site in the week.

Please note: We can only accept bookings from registered groups / organisations who hold public liability insurance. We cannot accept any bookings from members of the general public.
