Gilwell24 2016

On the 8th July 2016, Explorer scouts and senior section Guides will be descending on Gilwell Park for the annual 24. On the 9th July our group will be there offering time out from the full on activity that goes on for the full 24 hours. We are based in the Global zone in a marquee where we will be offering faith based craft activities and a time to reflect. Come and find us we look forward to meeting you!

An early morning start for the URCGSF team but not as early as some of the Explorer Scouts and senior section Guides whom had arrived on Friday night to start a weekend of non stop fun and lack of sleep. The URCGSF joined other groups in the Global Zone where we took the theme of friendship, offering craft activities and a place to sit down away from the heat and hectic pace of the rest of Gilwell24. The most popular activity we had on offer was friendship band making with some spending half an hour or more with us. Many asked questions about the group, religion and faith. Overall the day seemed to go well and we packed up tired and ready to go home long before the young people would leave on Sunday morning.
