Tawd Vale Scout Camp


Consisting of 80 acres of lush woodlands in the heart of the West Lancashire countryside, Tawd Vale has long been a favourite site for generations of campers.


Volunteer parties for many years have developed the area into one of the foremost sites in Britain.


The River Tawd from which the site derives its name wanders through the centre of the camp and adds to the natural beauty of the surrounding area, a place of fun and adventure.


Besides the wooded areas, adequate spaces have been left for campers and games, a large field is ideal for Cub activities.


Tawd can accommodate Patrol, Troop or District camps, training and International events and day visits for Beavers.
