Explorer's Snow Camp

Explorer's Snow Camp

Camping in January? They must be mad! The Unit attended this year's winter camp at Gilwell Park. A two day adventure camp for Scouts and Explorer Scouts.

This year's event was enormous with 2,500 campers from all over the UK. During the day the event organisers ran a large number of great activities including climbing, shooting, zorbing, quad biking and the Gillwell Park High Ropes course. In the evening a large disco became the focus of attention.

The one thing they weren't expecting was the (thin) carpet of snow that greeted them on the Saturday morning making this year's camp a real Winter Camp.
