Fox Coverts is run and maintained by a small team of volunteers. If you can spare some time to help us provide camping opportunities for young people, please contact us.
I would like to thank you & your fantastic team for a very enjoyable Cub Camp.
Hinckley District Scouts' campsite at Fox Coverts has provided camping opportunities for young people since 1956. We are located between the villages of Kirkby Mallory and Newbold Verdon in the East Midlands county of Leicestershire but also close to good road links. Covering nearly 16 acres of woodland, there are campsite areas to suit both group camps and patrol camps including secluded sites in wooded glades which are ideal for backwoods camping and constructing bivouacs.
Fox Coverts provides a number of activities suitable for all age groups and there are additional off-site activities available nearby. The site also makes an good base for hiking activities and has several public footpaths near the campsite.
We welcome bookings from Scout and Guide groups, schools, Duke of Edinburgh and other recognised youth groups. Sorry - we cannot currently accept private whole-site bookings.
Please contact us for further information and to check availability. We will be glad to help.
Yours in Scouting
The Fox Coverts Team
