DO 1 THING
Scout Community Week 2014
Taking place from 2-8 June 2014, Scout Community Week not only gives us the opportunity to tackle real issues with the community and raise funds for local Scouting, but it’s a chance to promote and champion all the inspiring things we do during the other 51 weeks of the year

Fox Coverts is run and maintained by a small team of volunteers which include Duty Wardens and maintenance staff.
If you can spare some time to help us continue to provide camping opportunities for young people, we would be very pleased to hear from you.

Welcome, Bienvenue, Willkommen, Bienvenido, Powitanie...
Run by volunteers, Fox Coverts Campsite has provided camping opportunities for young people since 1956. The Campsite is set in a lovely rural location between the villages of Kirkby Mallory and Newbold Verdon in the East Midlands county of Leicestershire but also conveniently situated close to good road links.
The site covers an area of nearly 16 acres of beautiful woodland and has a choice of sites to suit both group camps and patrol camps, including secluded sites in wooded glades suitable for backwoods camping and constructing bivouacs. Our Campsite Wardens will be on duty throughout your booking to help make sure that you have a safe and enjoyable stay. A perfect location for young people to learn new skills, make friends and have fun.
Fox Coverts provides a number of challenging and exciting activities suitable for all age groups, with additional off-site activities available nearby. The site also makes an excellent base for hiking activities and has several public footpaths near the Campsite.
We welcome bookings from Scout and Guide groups, Scout Leader training events, schools, Church Lads' and Church Girls' Brigade, Duke of Edinburgh and other recognised youth groups. We also accept non-DBSd private Whole Site bookings, subject to availability, but unfortunately we cannot accommodate individuals.
Please contact us for further information and to check availability. We will be glad to help and will endeavour to reply as soon as possible.
Hope to see you soon.
Yours in Scouting
The Fox Coverts Team
