Welcome to Warrington Scout Campsite & Activity Base which is owned and managed by Warrington East & Warrington West Scout District’s & the 25th Warrington (St Wilfrid’s) Scout Group.
Set on the edge of the Cheshire countryside, close to the Trans-Pennine Trail, the Warrington Scout Campsite and Activity Basereally is a hidden gem within the picturesque cobbled village of Grappenhall. Cobbled streets, stone buildings, canal bridges, a village school and Norman church form the character of this delightful conservation area. It's ideal for your group camps, family camps, pack camps, sleep overs and expedition practise camps etc.
Vacancies. 1. Wardens
We are looking for adults who could do occasional warden work at our Grappenhall campsite, seeing campers on and off the site, handing over keys and collecting same in and checking all is tidy when they leave.
2. Site maintenance team.
A small group of volunteers carry out maintenance work at the site, e.g. strimming, grass cutting, pruning, building repairs etc. Extra adult helpers would be appreciated. This is not a lot of work, in the season one evening a week and occasional hours at a weekend to suit your availability.
If interested in either or both roles contact Chris Jenner for information. Tel: 01925 263943. Or via Email
The site is also home to the 25th Warrington East (St Wilfrid’s) Scout Group, which has two thriving Beaver Colonies, two Cub Packs and Scout Troop. There is also a visiting Explorer Scout Unit.
The Scout Paddles Blazing ASU (Canoe Club) also operates off this Grappenhall site.
