Spitewinter is currently only available for local groups. Please ensure you adhere to the Scout Association guidance in place at the time of your visit.

Overnight Stays (from 21st June)

Lateral flow testing before group leaves and every 48 – 72 hours throughout the trip (over 11’s only) including adults.

Don’t fill tents to maximum capacity. We suggest two thirds occupancy, or use a four man tent for 2 people with bags in the centre.

Ventilate extensively daily. Try to ensure air flow through overnight in all but the worst weather, eg: by opening vents. Warn campers that they may need to take another layer of bedding or nightwear.

Encourage head to toe sleeping to keep heads wider apart overnight.

Avoid using sleeping accommodation for social activities, take a shelter which allows for a covered space if the weather is bad.

Consider grouping siblings together and people from the same school bubbles.

Use of Huts

Huts are not available for use.


The toilets are now unisex, a designated toilet block will be allocated to your groups bubble. Leaders should brief their group on which toilet to use and ensure only one person is in the toilet at any one time. If you require use of the disabled toilet please note this on your booking. So we can allocate accordingly.

Arrival / Departure

Arrival and departure times will be staggered, to ensure safe social distancing can be maintained. Parents transporting young people are asked to remain in their vehicles. Young people should go straight to their allocated activity zone, and remain within that zone until pickup.

Outdoor Space

The site has been split into zones. Groups will be allocated a zone. Bubble size in each zone is limited to the maximum allowed under current regulations of young people and leaders. If you have a preference to use a particular area of the site, please note this on your booking request, or inform the booking secretary.

COVID-19 Symptoms

Leaders must communicate before hand that anyone experiencing Covid-19 symptoms is not to attend. If a person is reported to have Covid at the time of the visit, the leader should notify the booking secretary immediately.
