About Lowther Adventure

The Sir John Lowther County Scout Activity Centre has been purpose built for residential and non residential activities and training for both adults and young people.

The Centre is owned and run by Northamptonshire County Scouts and is used as their Leader Training base and as the County Headquarters. Our residential and activity facilities are available to hire all year round.

The team of volunteers at the centre are constantly working to improve facilities and provide outdoor adventurous actvities. Ideas are always welcome.

Our facilities are available to hire by all youth and adult organisations, along with corporate and celebration events. The on site activities are available all year round, some weather dependant, and we are happy for activities to be brought on site by prior arrangement.

Come and have a look at our facilities by appointment to find out more, just get in contact.



The centre runs using an amazing team of volunteers known as Lowther’s Knights Scout Active Support Unit, along with a small team of crucial employed staff. If you are interested in joining our volunteer team in anyway, on a permanent or temporary basis, or can offer specialist skills and advice please find more information here. We would love to hear from you.
New ideas and projects are always welcome.
