Legend stay up all night at Gilwell 24
Several Units from around Essex including Braintree Explorers darted off the Gilwell Scout Activity Centre with a spring in their foot. Twenty four hours later they all became survivors of Gilwell 24. The whole awesome event is a challenge for all Explorers and Leaders alike.
Where else could you jump down a massive inflatable slide at 7am or archery at 2am. Ride the white water of the Olympic centre, scuba dive, ride in a hot air balloon, try fishing, wood turning or just chill with their new and old friends. Leaders too got the chance to encourage members to try new activities and catch up with other volunteers.
If you have a set of Explorers who think they could manage going for 24 hour flat – no sleep – then get them signed up for Gilwell 24 – 11-13 July 2014. But they may need a dry run – WINTAC!
