Reigate District Scouts Camp Site
Jordan Heights

Welcome to Jordan Heights.   (The Home of Reigate Camping)

Jordan Heights is a secluded campsite near Reigate. It was once a hillside garden for a member of the Royal Society. During World War 2 it was used to house an army pigeon loft. Reigate District Scouts took over the lease of the campsite from the National Trust on the 1st November 2011: the site having previously been leased to Girl Guiding Surrey East since September 1952.

The site is available for Scouting, Guiding, Youth Groups, Schools and D of E groups it is not open to the public.

This is a unique site, hidden away, but within 15 minutes of Reigate Station. An ideal place to walk into or out of from most Scout groups in the District.

Jordan Heights is on the wooded slope of Reigate Hill, within easy access of Junction 8 of the M25. Access is via a bridle way and a zig zag path with steps. It is well suited for camps of up to 100 persons. The site is on three levels with a large hut known as Doreen's Lodge on the main camping level. This has an open fire place and lighting from a generator.

If you want to be a backwoodsman or camp in the traditional way, this is the place for you. It has seclusion, mains water, two wash stations and four toilets with lighting run by a generator. There are tables and benches and lots of different garden games available for use by groups.We have an archery range, a rifle shooting range, a transverse Climbing Wall, Axe throwing, Shovel Throwing, Crazy Golf. orienteering and assault course.

Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer, Network and Leaders will love it

The escarpment, incorporating Reigate Hill and Gatton Park, is a splendid area for walkers. Its views are breathtaking, taking in the Weald and the South Downs. If you look up the escarpment from the A25, you can still clearly see the former stone quarries. Reigate stone was quarried here along with chalk, which was used in many local buildings. Greensand was also quarried for hearthstones and firestone.Reigate Fort on the Reigate Hill was one of 13 mobilisation centres built in the 1890s to protect London from invasion, although none of them ever saw action.The 60 hectares (149 acres) of Reigate Hill have been bought by the Trust in pockets from 1912 onwards, mainly with money raised locally and bequests from individuals. Gatton Park was acquired through two bequests; from Sir Jeremiah Colman and Mr A G Dibble.All of this is available just a short walk from the Camp Site.
Please check on the Calender for dates of work parties which run from 10am to 4pm on each date.
All welcome Tea and Coffee provided.
