The Camp Site consists of nine patrol areas, two grass activity areas and Pack holiday site, a Camp Fire Circle and a Chapel.

The neighbouring woodland provides plenty of wild country with scope for training for all Scout sections. Furzefields Woodland Camp Site is part of a tree protection order, hence the strict camping conditions.

The immediate area is littered with footpaths and bridleways, which can get you to the South Downs Way and other areas of surrounding countryside.

North Fields

This field is ideal or Cubs or Scouts camping under canvas. North Fields has room to comfortably fit six-patrol and mess tents. To the east of the field is an oven ideal for backwoods cooking.

South Fields

The South Field is much the same but has the busy activity area to the west. The larger oak trees can be used for climbing, rope bridges and other pioneering projects

Patrol Sites

There are nine patrol sites, These are available for patrol camps within the wooded area. Wood fires are permitted on own altar fires or on the bases provided. Although situated in a wooded area some wood for fires has to be gathered from further a field, so economy in burning is important. No trees may be felled or branches removed.

Site Features

Car parking is available for a limited number of cars near South Field area and toilets. The Camp Fire Circle is located to the far west of the site and Chapel area.
