Gilwell Day 4

Hello all! Alex here at Gilwell!

We had a very enjoyable end to Wednesday with the film Journey 2, before everyone got a good night’s sleep.

Thursday began with boiled eggs and toast in the Branchett Lodge, followed by a spectacular round of room inspections! Highlights included hand sanitizer attached to room doors and some lovely performances to welcome the adults into the rooms.

We had our last round of Gilwell-led activities today. Group 9 made pizza, brownies and S’mores in the back woods cooking! Delicious! We had baguettes once more for lunch with a special treat of a Twix before going for yet another stunning hike with views across picturesque Enfield, surely one of the jewels in the crown of North London boroughs. Two more activity sessions culminated in Emily and I climbing to the top of the climbing wall!

Dinner tonight was southern fried chicken breasts with corn on the cob and chips – my personal favourite of the week. It was followed by a light chocolate mousse. You can’t have the last day of Gilwell without the campfire and we had yet another superb time. We sang Everywhere We Go, My Song is a Good Song, Popacatopetyl, Boom-Chic-A-Boom, Blackbird, Driving Down the Road and (of course) the Bungalow!

We got back to the Branchett Lodge and played card and board games and had some hot chocolate before getting ready for bed. We have mixed emotions – joyful at the magic of another great Gilwell visit but also sad because tomorrow we have to leave! See you back at school!
