About Hillcrest

Hillcrest is one of our smaller centres, but its cosy atmosphere makes it an ideal venue for younger Cubs and Scouts on an outdoor adventure camp. Situated close to the River Wye, Hillcrest has plenty of exciting adventure activities in the grounds where your Cubs and Scouts can learn a range of new skills including canoeing which takes place on the nearby River Wye. 

Hillcrest provides comfortable accommodation for visiting groups and their leaders and a range of facilities including a basketball court, floodlit playing field, plus a common room for group members and a lounge for group leaders.

Supervised evening entertainment sessions keep your Cubs and Scouts having fun before retiring to our comfortable accommodation.
