Hollinwood is a Scout campsite in Greater Manchester. And much more.
It is a place to learn skills for life. It is an idea, a project. It is countryside. In Salford. A place to relax, have fun, explore nature, get dirty, breathe clean air.
It's a place to be with friends or with yourself.
Come and join us!

Tractor Appeal - Hollinwood Heroes: Apr 4th 2021. 14:00
Our £5,000 target is reached!!! Amazingly our local community came together to raise the funds needed to buy a new tractor/lawn mower. This appeal was started by Councillor Bob Clarke. Our new machine will naturally be christened 'Bob' once we've purchased it. Thank you to all who donated. If you'd like to make a small ongoing contribution towards the running of the site visit this page
Hollinwood Heroes: Mar 15th 2021. 09:15
Huge appreciation as total donations for 2021 pass £350!!! Our next Hollinwood Heroes target is to raise funds for a new tractor. Alongside 2 grant applications that we've recently submitted we are raising £5,000 by May 1st to purchase a new machine to keep the campsite maintained.

RHS / Roe Deer update: Mar 1st 2021. 17:30
For the past 2 months the Hollinwood Managers have been in direct communication with the Head of RHS Bridgewater and his team to work up a plan to re-home the remaining deer from our old site at Middlewood to Hollinwood. This is a huge step forward and great news for the community we live in.
As Scouts, wildlife is extremely important to us, as is our local community. We believe in building bridges and improving relations with our neighbours to reach positive conclusions
We know that the RHS have upset many local people but by working together we can protect local wildlife better. We are confident that RHS Bridgewater are doing everything possible to keep the remaining deer healthy.
