A huge thank you to Dave Cook and Cerys Sage who gave up their Friday evening to do some crate stacking with 3rd Newbridge Scout Group… we all had a fantastic time
Volunteering at Scouts isn’t just about changing young people’s lives. It’s about doing something that’s #GoodForYou too. Good for your health and happiness, good for developing skills, and good for making friends.

General information

CRAI Activity Park is situated in the former mining town of Newbridge in the South East Wales valleys which is famous for its picturesque views, and of course male voice choirs! It is also home to Newbridge Memorial Hall which featured on the BBC programme ‘Restoration’.

The Park is set in approximately seven acres of open countryside which looks over the Cilonydd mountain. It is an ideal site for campers who wish to do their own thing or go out and about visiting local attractions such as Big Pit National Coal Museum, Cwmcarn Forest Drive and Llancaiach Fawr Manor House. A fifteen minute walk or a three minute car journey will take you into the centre of Newbridge which hosts a number of shops including a newsagents, chemist and a small supermarket.

Campsite Staff

Our campsite is run by a small group of volunteers some of which are ex-leaders. The day to day running of the Park is carried out by Park Commissioner, Symon Dunstan.
