Welcome to Jordan Heights.   (The Home of Reigate Camping)

Jordan Heights is a secluded campsite near Reigate. It was once a hillside garden for a member of the Royal Society. During World War 2 it was used to house an army pigeon loft. The site has been leased to Girl guiding Surrey East from the National Trust for 50 years. As a District we would like to take the Camp site on and turn it into Reigate District Site’s very own Camp Site.

This is a unique site, hidden away, but within 15 minutes of Reigate Station. An ideal place to walk into or out of from most Scout groups in the District.

Jordan Heights is on the wooded slop of Reigate Hill, within easy access of Junction 8 of the M25, access is via a bridle way and a zig zag path with steps. It is well equipped for camps of up to 50 persons. It is to be leased by the National Trust to Reigate District Scouts. The site is on three levels with a large hut on the main camping level.

If you want to be a backwoodsman or camp in the traditional way, this is the place for you- it has seclusion, mains water, a wash block, chemical toilets, solar lights and gas. Hopefully electricity in the near future via a small generator. Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer, network and Leaders will love it.
