Gilwell 2017 Part 2

Tuesday ended with popcorn and the Lego Movie in the Peter Harrison lodge! It was a lovely way to end the night. The children had a long sleep after a very energetic and fun day!

Wednesday began with a classic breakfast dish: beans on toast! In the Branchet lodge we had another superb game of cricket! In Peter Harrison there was an exciting round of room inspections! Then we were off to do our first activities! Bullseyes were hit in archery, laps were raced in the pedal go karts, crates were stacked in… Crate stacking. Some of the groups worked on their map skills whilst finding codes in the orienteering. A fantastic time was had by all.

There was a few changes in the adults today as we bade farewell to Ebru, Shireena and Shara but welcomed Emily, George, Louise and Xanthe to the team! The Branchet lodge visited the shop after the activities, whilst the Peter Harrison lodge had some free time (they will be shopping tomorrow!) Dinner was sumptuous tonight – meatballs with pasta or a chicken korma with a dessert of apple crumble with custard. Mmmmmmmmmmm!

Because rain was in the forecast, we have postponed the camp fire until tomorrow. Instead we are having a cinema night with the new BFG film! Tomorrow is another busy day as the children enjoy their final round of Gilwell ran activities and hopefully we will be having round two of the campfire!
