Our ongoing commitment to providing high-quality experiences is at the heart of what we do and we will do everything we can to uphold existing bookings where possible.

We strongly advise our valued customers to get in touch with our Bowley Office via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to confirm your arrangements at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for your understanding.


Bowley Campsite and Activity Center is at the heart of East Lancashire and is situated at the gateway to the North Ribble Valley and Pennine Moors. It is also within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales, Fylde Coast and Lakeland Hills.

The centre occupies an area of 47 acres of rolling meadow land bounded by woodland and the River Calder offering visitors magnificent views of Pendle and the surrounding countryside. The site is easily reached by road with rail links to the nearby towns of Blackburn and Accrington.

Established nearly 50 years ago as a training base for members of the Scout and Guide movements, it has provided specialist outdoor skills training to hundreds of young people and adult leaders.

Bowley Scout Camp and Activity Centre does not confine its facilities to those within the Scout movement but acts as a host to schools and colleges using it as a venue for weekday and weekend courses. These offer a challenging outdoor experience stretching young people's minds by combining healthy pursuits with character building and an appreciation of teamwork.

We can also provide for groups outside scouting. You can come along to try a new activity or for corporate customers or one of the many team building activities.
