Coronavirus Safety

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic, we will have a number of measures in place to help keep you and your Group safe during your time with us. We also have some additional rules and information in place which may differ from standard Ferny Crofts procedure.  

This includes limiting site capacity, enhanced cleaning regimes, various social distancing measures, and careful management of the toilet and shower facilities in accordance with latest guidelines.
Please note that for short-term stays, we cannot guarantee that showers will be available at this stage. 

All of these will be explained to you when you place your booking.  

To place a booking, please email us at fernycrofts@fernycrofts.org.uk providing us with details of what you would like to book.  


We will be carefully managing the site to ensure social distancing guidelines can be met, so it is essential that you have a confirmed booking in place before attending the site. 

We will provide you with full details of the safety measures in place when we confirm your booking.

These are subject to change in accordance with the latest guidelines, but we will always be working to the current Scout Association regulations, which can be found by clicking here.



You can book the site for your own planned activity, or alternatively book one of our self-led or instructed activities. 
Some activities will be delivered in a different way to usual to ensure social distancing can be maintained throughout the sessions. 

In addition, we are currently unable to run the following instructed activities due staffing restrictions that we are facing this year:


  •   Zip Wire

  •   Quick Jump 

  •   Abseiling

  •   Tunnelling


You will need to have your planned activity approved through the Scout Association's "Getting everyone back together safely" framework. Please ensure you have done this prior to placing a booking.
