Gilwell Centenary Camps

Camp out under the stars at Gilwell Park

What better way to celebrate our centenary than to camp out under the stars at Gilwell Park? Spend a week at the 'home of Scouting,' learning Skills for life, enjoying a range of on-site activities, off-site visits and take part in the Gilwell Heritage trail.

You'll learn about our future plans as well as our rich past - something to tell the next generation.

The programme

The dates of this camp mean you'll be camping at Gilwell exactly 100 years after the official opening of Gilwell Park.

The week will be an opportunity to celebrate 100 years of young people and adults learning, laughing and making friends at Gilwell Park.

Split into themed days of activities, the week will include:

Gilwell Adventure – an opportunity to try many of the activities Gilwell has to offer

Off-site Adventures – making use of the local surroundings and facilities

London Experience – a chance to visit the capital city and take in some of the most iconic sight 

Original Gilwell Experience – activities drawing on inspiration from the activites that would have been taking place around Gilwell 100 years ago. Pioneering, animal tracking, camp cooking and scout staves

Gilwell Centenary Project – a chance to leave your mark on Gilwell Park for future generations as we build the Centenary Gateway across the week.
