Paccar Scout Camp is situated on the ridge between Chalfont St. Peter and the River Colne in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside.
We originally opened in 1938 when the camp was purchased by The Scout Association after an anonymous donation of money, it was operated by Scout Headquaters as a base for scouts to camp.
In 1970 Greater London Middlesex West took over the site as its County campsite and Training Centre. In 2008, following a donation of £500,000 from the PACCAR Foundation, the site name was changed to PACCAR Scout Camp.
We have a variety of buildings offering accommodation and space to be used for badge work, games or training facilities. We have 44 acres of woodland and two large fields (one of 6 acres and one of 10 acres) both perfect for camping.
Our assortment of activities are all designed with fun and entertainment in mind, they help build self-esteem, confidence and team work skills. Our activities are all run by our Activity Crew members who hold the relevant qualifications for each activity.
We get 40,000 young visitors a year, all of who have a fantastic experience and memories to last a life time.
Paccar Scout Camp is blessed with extensive woodlands and we are always looking at ways of encouraging young people to understand and appreciate this important legacy.
We have a 25 year plan for our woodland areas, which includes removal of our pine plantation and planting of more traditional broad leaf trees.
All work is carried out by our voluntary forestry crew, who meet on site every 2nd Saturday of each month. This group of volunteers are always looking for additional help so please get in touch if you can help out. We plan to carry out more planting and seeding as well as hedge laying, which will encourage more wildlife back into our woodlands.
