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.
This is a unique site, hidden away, but within 15 minutes of Reigate Station. An ideal place to walk into or out of from the North Downs.
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, Crazy Golf, Camp Fire Circle, Chapel, Pioneering Poles available, orienteering course
and assault course.
Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer, Network and Leaders will love it!
