Why Scout Adventures?

The Big Moments

Scout Adventures is all about the big moments. Whether it’s leaping off a jetty into a lake at the end of a day’s canoeing, chatting about the day’s activities in a bunk bed after lights out, or roasting marshmallows over glowing embers, these are memories being made.  

But something else is happening too. Young people are learning the character skills they need to succeed: leadership, teamwork, resilience and initiative. To them it feels like fun, but these are the experiences that help them grow as people.

Supporting you

We know that the residential is often the highlight of your year. That’s why it’s important that you have the information and support you need to make the right decision.

We’ll provide you with the information and resources you need to share with your team before you decide. We want you to feel comfortable with every aspect of the journey, from enquiry and booking to arrival and post visit.

Once you’ve made the decision to book with Scout Adventures, we’ll look after you every step of the way.

"A week of camp life is worth six months of theoretical teaching in the meeting (class) room."

Robert Baden-Powell, Founder of Scouting

The camp was a once in a lifetime opportunity because I don't ever get to do things like this. We learn to appreciate what we have at home, bonding with people we don't know so well and how to survive in the middle of nowhere.

I really enjoyed coming to Great Tower and I especially enjoyed cooking on the open fire. The other activities were good too, for example the den building. The team challenges are good for children to work together.

The children were so excited and grateful for the adventure. The standard of tuition and tents were great. The care we were shown, the surroundings in the restaurant and quality of food we were given were unsurpassed in my 30 years’ experience of teaching and taking children on trips!

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We loved the tented village - we were only staying the one night, and it was blissful not to have to put tents up, or take them down the next morning, especially considering the weather we had. It's such a reasonable price too - we were very pleased with our experience and will definitely come again.
