Braggers Wood is a small to medium woodland site with a traditional scouting feel yet with many modern facilities.

The site is close to the New Forest, the south coast and Brownsea Island with plenty of activities onsite and in the surrounding areas.

Camping is on small pitches and large fields or indoor accommodation is in one of the three lodges and a den.

Onsite activities include archery, air rifle shooting, tomahawk throwing and bouldering. You can use the campfire circle, the outdoors wood oven, the woods or the outdoor chapel.


Available to scouts and guides, DofE groups and youth groups. Lodge availability can be limited but camping space usually available although the first two weeks of the school summer holidays gets booked up quickly.

The activities and the large fields can also be booked for scout meetings without staying overnight. Try a wide game and bouldering. Archery followed by a pizza from the oven. What would you do?


Please note, members of the public cannot camp here. Nor do we hire out the site for events eg. celebrations.
