Winter Camp 2013

11 Scouts and 3 leaders joined about 2500 other Scouts at Scouting Headquarters at Gillwell Park, North London for a weekend of activities in sub-zero conditions. It was cold, but not wet. We were joined by 5 Scouts and 1 leader from Birdham & Witterings Group as well. We travelled up on the train on Friday evening, arriving at the camp site at 9pm. After pitching tents, we had time to explore and go to the disco, before returning to bed about midnight. Saturday was full of activities from 10:00 to 17:30 with breaks for lunch and evening meal. In the evening there were films to watch and another disco, but some Scouts retired early as they were exhausted from all the activities. There were more activities to do on the Sunday morning before lunch. The leaders had kindly packed the tents allowing us to leave the campsite at 2pm for the journey home, arriving back in Chichester at 6pm.
