Gilwell 2018 Day 3

Hello all from Gilwell! Alex here…

The end of day two was a wonderful experience with lovely burgers and chips served by Chef Chris. After dinner we retired to the Peter Harrison lodge for a movie / cinema night. We watched the modern Disney classic of Zootropolis and had some delicious popcorn. After the movie, it was time for bed. Children and adults alike had a very well earned sleep!

Day two began with beans on toast and cereal for breakfast before the Branchett Lodge went outside to play football and cricket. We had one activity session before lunch, with kayaking being particularly memorable as David got in the lake and menaced the kayakers! Lunch was cheese sandwiches, tuna sandwiches and chicken sandwiches.

One of the highlights of Gilwell is always the hike to the hill with stunning views over to central London. We ran down the hill and took some super class photos. Once we finished with the hill, we visited the Gilwell shop to spend our spending money on souvenirs. With no Gilwell-led activities in the afternoon, we had a bumper free time session. Branchett lodge enjoyed a game of football and a superb game of rounders! In Peter Harrison lodge we played 20 questions! I was a goat!

Dinner tonight was a beautiful pasta bake with chocolate brownies and ice cream! We are now settling down to our second cinema night, watching Journey 2 – The Mysterious Island.
