A big thank you to all 47 scouts, young and old, who attended winter camp 2011, on representing the 5th Dartford Scout Group at Gilwell Park. On Friday afternoon 5 leaders set up camp in the pouring rain and receiving scouts from early evening. With some 2500+ campers, all the grass turned to mud quickly. With so many activities available, the scouts and explorers were straight out enjoying themselves.
Despite the quagmire, we all had a good time. There were free Fun Fair Rides and a Disco, on both evenings. There was a variety of different activities from laser quasar to segways and climbing.
The Scouts made the most of their time at Gilwell, returning to the activities on Sunnday, whilst the Leaders dropped camp.
We couldn’t have done it without the help of parents providing transport to and from the venue, so a big thank you to them and all the leaders who made the camp possible.
Looking forward to the next camp!
