Peak camps have run since 1974, and have been held every 5 years since 1980. The camps have been held in the grounds of Chatsworth House and are organised as a joint venture by Derbyshire Scouts and Girlguiding Derbyshire.
The most recent event, Peak 2015, attracted over 4,500 young people from across Derbyshire, the UK and other countries. Alongside these young people were their leaders and over 1,500 staff. In total we had 7,000 residential campers along with daily visitors and day staff.
Peak 2020 will run from 25th July-1st August and we have, once again, been given permission by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire to use the Chatsworth Estate. Our site starts as a green field and our team of volunteers transform it into a fully operational tented village.
Over the coming months, we will be updating our website with much more information – keep an eye out for volunteer roles, sub camp information, our shop and much more.
