Calderdrift Scout Campsite

Wakefield District Scouts

Calderdrift Scout Campsite is managed by Wakefield Scouts and is open to Scouts, Guides, Duke of Edinburgh and other Youth Groups for day or evening visits and camping throughout the year.




The campsite is on the site of the former Calder Drift open cast coal mine off Denby Dale Road, Wakefield which is now landscaped with open grass fields and woodlands.

Please bear with us!


We are currently in the early stages of developing a new website for Calderdrift to help to show off all the amazing facilities we have avalable to Scouts, Guides and other Youth Organisations.

We have now acquired a supply of the original cloth Camp Site Badge from when the site opened and these are available to campers at £1 each and can be ordered on the Activity Prices Sheet booking form
