Biblins Youth Campsite

Biblins campsite is one of the best places in Southern Britain for young people to enjoy outdoor education in spectacular scenery.

New Managment for 2018 onwards

The Forestry Commission are pleased to announce new management arrangements for the Biblins Youth Campsite.  After many years of in-house management, the site will now be managed under a long-term lease with the UK charity, Woodcraft Folk.

Woodcraft Folk are a progressive youth organisation with 90 years’ experience of supporting children and young people to camp, play and learn about the environment.

Woodcraft Folk will begin the season with a working weekend at the end of January, giving the site a makeover and developing their plans for the site. If you are interested in making a booking or volunteering to support children and young people to access the site please contact biblins@woodcraft.org.uk
