About Silver Sapling

Enclosed by picturesque woodland, Silver Sapling is a voluntary run campsite that provides an outstanding outdoors experience for Girlguiding members, as well as family camps, schools and other non-guide association groups. We are easily accessible from the M6, yet set in peaceful countryside, located in a National Trust “area of outstanding natural beauty”.  With direct access to beautiful woodland walks and stunning rocky coastlines, Silver Sapling campsite provides camping facilities for large or small camps.

Our campsite is ideally situated for exploring the historic city of Lancaster and the Lake District, we’re also a short walk from Silverdale train station for trains to Preston, Manchester and beyond. On site, we can supply numerous activities including garden games, archery, go carts, grass sledges and even a large marquee capable of hosting your events. Complete with indoor facilities for the preparation of food or for wet weather shelter, clean washrooms, hot showers, disabled access and fridge freezers, we really are an ideal location for your experience in the North West.


Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK. Thanks to the dedication and support of 100,000 amazing volunteers, we are active in every part of the UK, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities. We build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good.
