New Camp Fire Circle at Pinsent

Winchester Scouts have won an £8,000 grant from Tesco to build a new amphitheatre style Camp Fire Circle at their Pinsent Camp Site.

This amazing new facility replaces the old circle that dates back to the 1930s
when Pinsent was donated to Winchester Scouts.
The new Camp Fire Circle will seat 300 Scouts at any one time – an increase
of 200 to accommodate so many more young people and parents wanting to
share in the modern SCOUTING ADVENTURE. There are now 11 Scout
Groups in Winchester, with 50 sections and 300 leaders for over 1,200 young people.
The rebuild will be one of the largest camp fire circles in the UK – a
testament to the growth in local Scouting and the demand for camping at
Pinsent.  This cements Scouts as Winchester parents’ preferred destination for young peoples’ character development and adventure based non-formal education. Scouts call this ‘learning by doing’.
