Danemead Badge

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 Barnet Borough, Chingford, Enfield and North London Districts and run solely by volunteers, Danemead is dedicated to getting everyone interacting with nature from all walks of life.
