Thorrington Scout Camp

Welcome To

Welcome to one of Essex's best campsites and activity centres.

Located just outside the town of Colchester we are home to action packed activities and experiences. Our core mission is to give young people the opportunity to challenge and empower themselves to do something different and exciting.

‘Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.’ 

Bear Grylls, UK Chief Scout
