Cranham Scout Centre is ideally placed to be used for practice and full bronze and silver Duke of Edinburgh expeditions.
The centre is equipped with a range of camping spaces that are suitable for small teams to much larger groups. Each campsite offers access to water standpipes and toilet and shower facilities are close by.
Support vehicles can be parked in our car park, and we have indoor accommodation available for supervisors and assessors at a reasonable rate.
We also have a marquee and small meeting room that can be used for training purposes.
Where to go and Projects
The centre is surrounded by a network of public footpaths that allow walkers and cyclists to explore the unique environment that the Cotswolds have to offer. Within easy distance, participants can access woodland, hills, arable and livestock farming, studs and the urban environment. This offers a vast range of opportunities for projects while completing the expedition.
