Face to Face Scouting AT FERNY CROFTS Readiness Level Amber 

Ferny Crofts is open from 12th April 2021 onwards for Scout Groups to use our outdoor space as Day Visitors, as we support the phased return to face-to-face Scouting. 


At this time we are open for Scout Groups as day visitors only, with no overnight stays. Each group MUST have gained the relevant approvals prior to attending the site.

Information last updated: 9th April 2021


We are open for Scout Groups to use our outdoor spaces for approved Scouting activities from 12th April under the Amber Readiness Level. This will be free of charge until May 2021, unless you wish to book certain activities. 

We will be open 7 days per week, with bookings to be made by email. It is essential that you do not attend site without having a booking confirmed. 

We are taking bookings for the majority of Self-Led Activities and can now offer instructed target sports activities - more details below.

COVID 19 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 to 35% of usual bookings, enhanced cleaning regimes, various social distancing measures, and allocating defined toilet facilities to your Group only. All of these will be explained to you when you place your booking.  


We will be operating a contactless  check-in where you can reach members of our team by telephone if you need us. 

When you arrive on site, we will ask you to call us to check in. We will then come and meet you outside (at a safe distance) to ensure you have everything you need. 

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.



You can book the site for your own planned activity, or alternatively book one of the following self-led Activities: 

  • Aeroball

  • Crazy Golf

  • Frisbee Golf

  • Pizza Oven

  • Table Tennis

  • Orienteering

  • Nature Trail & Picture Trail

We can also now offer the following instructed activities:

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.
