The Wymondley Wood Site
The Wymondley Wood Scout and Guide Centre is a residential centre for organised youth groups. It was opened by George Purdy (Chief Scout) and Jenny Leach (Chief Guide) in May 2003. The centre is located between Willian and Great Wymondley.
The building can sleep forty-two and is situated within four acres of camp site with access to an adjacent 20-acre conservation area with mature woods, stream, pond and grassland.
The property is jointly leased from the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation by Letchworth and Baldock District Scout Council and Letchworth Garden City Guides.
The building’s facilities include
The four-acre camp site has been planted with many young trees and attractively landscaped. There is mature woodland to the north and mature hedges east, west and south. There is a camp fire site, arena space for games, camping for two company/troop size camps, and a patrol camp. The site also has a wet weather shelter, male and female ablution block and an outside washing up facility with hot and cold water.
On site activities include, mini assault course, pioneering, archery, 5-a-side football, It’s-a-knockout, volleyball, play parachute, and small group games. Please note some of the activities are at extra cost.
