17 acres of Fun, Challenge & Adventure

Set in mature woodland and surrounded by farmland, Snowball Plantation is a Scout Activity Centre providing a variety of camp sites, buildings and activities for young people.

The aim is to provide a safe environment where young people can enjoy opportunities for constructive activities, recreation, nature and learning through their adventures at Snowball. The size of the site and the facilities it offers makes it ideal for full week long camps, weekends, midweek breaks, single day or evening events

Snowball Plantation is open to receiving enquiries from Scout/Guide Groups, corporate organisations, youth organisations, educational bodies, training organisations, for Duke of Edinburgh Award activities and by a growing number of other users for team building, development, away days, and field trips.
