Gilwell Park

Y5 had a fantastic time on their adventure to Gilwell Park. We hope you enjoy the photos.

Everyone slept so well last night! It’s another lovely day here at Gilwell. After a hearty breakfast we had our last two activities and had lunch while we reviewed the points and listened to the team songs. Who were the winners?


The sun shone on us today for a full range of activities including climbing, crate stacking, backwoods cooking, archery and team building. After a fabulous dinner of lasagne and sweet and sour chicken followed by ice creams we went out for a camp fire and a singsong and – hopefully – a good night’s sleep!


We got off to a great start and, despite the rain, the children immediately got into the first activities including orienteering, archery, climbing, zip wire and crate stacking.

After a lovely dinner of Shepherd’s Pie and macaroni cheese the children settled into their rooms before a game of football in the grounds. And the sun even came out!

And there was a special birthday for one child.
