Downe Activity Centre

Within the GLSE county we have the Downe Activity Centre which is a National Scout Centre, run by Scout Headquarters.

Downe Activity CentreDowne is a beautiful, wooded undulating Camp Site situated 16 miles from central London in rural Kent. Downe is south of Bromley and Orpington, and north east of Biggin Hill. It consists of large open grass sites surrounded by trees, together with many smaller woodland sites.

Downe is steeped in Scouting history. Gang Shows began through a show to raise money to build our outdoor pool which Baden-Powell opened on 18th June 1933. A history 'talk' can be provided during your stay at Downe.
