Spitewinter campsite is used frequently by all sections of 3rd Brampton, for a range of activities including camping, camp fires/fire lighting, and wide-games. The site consists of four acres of sloping woodland with two accommodation blocks, an activity hut, toilets, and a large camp fire circle. For more information about the camp site, please see the Chesterfield Districts Scouts website.
We are very lucky to have such a fantastic facility available to us, that is only 15 minutes away from our normal venue at St Thomas’.
The site is located on the A632 (Matlock Road). The main entrance to the site is located on the left, 450m after the main road forks towards Darley Dale (or 200m after the brow of the hill after the Darley Dale turning). There is also a drop-off/pick-up point on Highashes Lane (second left after the Darley Dale turning) as shown on the map below, which should normally be used by parents – a leader will man the gate as Beavers/Cubs/Scouts arrive/leave the venue. There is very limited parking at the main entrance and so we would like to stress that this entrance should only be used by leaders/parent helpers.
