WELCOME TO HILLSIDE

Hillside Scout Campsite is the official campsite for Adur Valley District Scouts in partnership with a number of Scout Groups in Hove & Portslade. In September 1937 the 21 acres campsite was officially opened for the Scouts of the Hove to Shoreham-by-Sea Area

Hillside is available to Scout & Guide Groups, Youth organisations, Schools and outdoor providers.


The campsite is located at the foot of the north side of the South Downs and is set within ancient woodland, you can hike to or from us with ease. We can accommodate groups of various sizes. Our site is a great place for a scouting weekend camp or a Duke of Edinburgh Hike destination as well as longer camps. It offers a large cut field ideal for any camp and a meadow camping field plus an untamed site.

Pizza oven
Great fun.
Just put a hot disposable BBQ in the base of the oven, Pizzas on the shelf and let them cook. 
Doesn't take long and is great for fussy eaters as they can choose their own topping!!
