Bramhope Scout Centre
Bramhope Scout Campsite is set in 13.5 acres of peaceful natural woodland and grassland full of wildlife safely enclosed by natural boundaries. At Bramhope Scout Campsite children and young people have the freedom to have fun: they can get muddy, build dens and experience adventurous activities in an safe but challenging outdoor environment. Bramhope Campsite has three high quality bunk style accommodation blocks with separate rooms for teachers. For campers the site has 9 independent fields serviced by outdoor water taps, an outdoor washing up station and a toilet / shower block with modern showers. There is also an outdoor barbeque shelter which seats 32 under cover. There is also a large campfire circle to gather round at the end of the day. You can explore the Yorkshire Dales from Bramhope Campsite with easy access to Otley Chevin, Brimham rocks and the Yorkshire 3 peaks.
Why are Bramhope Scout Centre great for School Trips and Educational Visits?
Bramhope Scout Campsite ethos is to extend access to challenging activities in the outdoors to develop young peoples’ values relating to: respect of themselves, of others and of the world in which we live, their ability to care for and support others, and sense of cooperation whilst making their own choices by undertaking challenging activities. Bramhope Campsite is ideal for children and young people who have had limited experience of the outdoors particularly pupils from inner city schools. Children and young people are supported to be independent on site whilst teachers don't have to worry where they end up! We have a wide range of activities on site and you can pick and choose which activities you can access or we can tailor programmes to support you to fulfil the aims of your schools visits: this might be for an end of year reward, introduction to resilience for years 6/7's, all activities will provide the practical experience of topics covered at key stages to complete the outside of the classroom learning experience.
