The Axis Foundation donated £3,000 to Danemead Scout Camp Site to help convert an existing external toilet into a purpose-design disabled toilet and washroom.
Welcome to Danemead Scout Campsite
“Nestled in the Heart of nature and only 28 minutes from Central London by train is Danemead Scout Campsite.
Set in 34 acres of ancient coppiced woodland with unspoilt beauty, Danemead is the perfect location for any youth organisation wishing to get back to basics and be one with nature. Ranging from grassed Campsites to thick wooded Campsites there’s a spot for everyone. You could even stay in our beautiful cabin and have the best of both worlds.
Owned and managed by four Scout districts and run solely by volunteers, Danemead is dedicated to getting everyone interacting with nature from all walks of life.
We look forward to seeing you.”
