Butchers Coppice Scout Camp in Bournemouth

About Butchers Coppice Scout Camp

Butcher Coppice Scout camp is quite a find and must be up there with one of Bournemouth’s great gems. When approaching by car you would never expect this enchanted adventure theme park in the woods to just appear- especially when its only 15 minutes from Bournemouth! Darren Gilbert runs the camp in his spare time on the weekends and from the looks of it he is helping take the camp from strength to strength.
