Everton:- Greenock District Scout Camp

Everton Scout Training Camp, at a height of 400 ft, is located approximately 1¼ south east of the village of Inverkip.

The long established site covers roughly five acres. However this has been increased substantially by Inverclyde Council’s recent transfer of a further 35 acres of adjacent fields on a 99 year lease.

This new ground enhances the potential of the Camp and will provide the opportunity for massive development and the establishment of additional outdoor activity facilities. As a first step, a new car park area has been established immediately outside the gates of Everton.


The Lodge House provides indoor accommodation facilities enabling year round use.






The Campsite provides facilities for camping and as a base for training together with adventure.These facilities have been improved by the addition of two new toilet units which include a dedicated Special Needs section.

For making these superb toilet units possible, our sincere thanks are expressed to:-

Awards for All, Garfield Weston Foundation, People’s Postcode Trust, Scout Association Treloar Fund, Scouts Scotland Special Needs Fund, The Clothworkers Foundation, The Rank Foundation and The Robertson Trust



Our range of Outdoor Adventure Activities suffered the loss of our Crate Climb and, Zip Slide and Jacobs Ladder.

A  Low Rope Course, Archery  and Axe throwing are avaiable.  View the page on the right hand side – ‘Outdoor Activities’ for further information and to view a selection of photographs.

A new Crate Climb was completed in July 2019. We are indebted to the generosity of Ferguson Marine Engineering ( for the fabrication of the structure) and to Lightways (Contractors)  for the required groundwork and erection

It must be mentioned that D of E (Inverclyde) were largely responsible for work associated with the decking.

A separate page is dedicated to the Official Opening Ceremony






With the aid of Scottish Scout Headquarters, three campsites have been rotovated, destoned and returfed while a fourth site is still to be completed, Work has included  improving the field drainage across the campsite together with general upgrading of the lodge and contained toilets.
Once again, we are grateful to the People’s Postcode Trust for providing funding which has enabled ground cultivation machinery to be purchased.



Due to further funding from both Scouts Scotland  and the Scout Association, we have been able to lay new pathways from our central car park up to the church area and round to the site that has been made suitable for use by our Special Needs Group.





With the assistance of the People’s Postcode Trust, we have been able to lay an Astroturf surface on the floor of the old swimming pool. As the pool is now often used as a soft play area it will be a more friendly environment for young people to play
