Arrowe Park is a Scout campsite in Benoni in Gauteng, near to OR Tambo International Airport, and is named after the location of the 1929 World Jamboree


A charge of R130 per person per weekend is charged. The ablutions, Cub den, Scouter's den and kitchen are available free of charge.
An extra fee is charged if other facilities are used (eg. for the use of the Arrowe Park gas equipment or canoes). We are also asking all visitors to plant a tree when they come to camp, to help us get Arrowe Park looking great for all of us.

Please contact us for daily rates or rates for longer camps.
