West Hall is South Tyneside District Scouts own camp site with Lodge facility. As well as traditional camping, West Hall is ideally placed for a variety of activities including a number of nature walks in the surrounding area. West Hall is not far from South Shields and Sunderland’s award winning coastlines and beaches and is only 35 minutes drive to Newcastle and a 15 minutes drive to Sunderland city centre.
Set in its own woodland and comprising 8 camp sites of double patrol size or to cater for up to for 6 man tents each with its own fireplace, West Hall really is the place to experience outdoor Scouting or any outdoor activities, back to basics and offer the magic of outdoor camping.
If you want to camp as a large Group or even a District, then the larger training ground field is ideal. The centre ground offers another small field that caters for all games and events you are hosting while at camp. Further down the camp site we also have a main camp fire circle with seating. So the great tradition of sitting around the camp fire and letting voices get an airing can live on! We have a well stocked woodpile so you can easily keep the fire going. Male and female toilet and shower facilities are also available onsite and we also have disable facilities.
Set in the beautiful and quiet area of the site and tucked away is the chapel. This truly is a place for reflection or to take time out from the bustle of a busy weekend.
Westfield Lodge offers a classroom facility for Scout and Guide sections to use as a base for a wide range of onsite activities and a wealth of local attractions and places to visit.
Even if camping under canvas is not for you, the newly upgrades BP Lodge is ideal for your every need. This provides full kitchen facilities, 9 Bunk rooms, including Access friendly shower and toilet with additional shower and toilets .
If you would like more information about using either the Lodge or the camping field please get in touch with who you are and when you would like to come and we can send you more detailed information.
