Scouting and Guiding

The Centre provides a great venue for all uniformed groups whether you are local or planning to camp in the area. (Nearest camp site is Eastbourne District, Bushy Wood on the A22 at Hailsham). Your group will have a fantastic visit; be it just a few hours, all day or even for an evening!

As well as exploring the hands-on exhibits, your group can be taken through some of the requirements for Activity Badges (small additional charge). Or for something really different, why not arrange a Twilight Visit?

The Centre can accommodate groups of up to 240 children (plus adults) anytime from the beginning of February to mid December and is a suitable venue for a daytime District or Area event.

Cost and How to Book

Cost £5.25 per child, plus £1 for badgework (optional).

Accompanying adults are responsible for the safe conduct of their group at all times.
Uniformed leaders are admitted free of charge to the following ratios:
Beavers & Brownies 1-4

Essential carers for children with disabilities within the group are also admitted free of charge.

Group organisers are welcome to a complimentary visit to The Centre to check the facilities and discuss arrangements etc- please call in advance and we will try to ensure a member of staff is available to answer your questions.  This is also the opportunity to discuss options of Bridge Building or even Science Shows & Telescope Tours (small extra charge per child) dependent on when your group are planning to visit and how many there will be.

Large groups are welcome, with additional adults and non- scouting children accompanying the group admitted at the reduced rate of just £5.25 pp.
