Dear Parents/Guardians,

Re: Gilwell Residential School Trip for Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 on 21st– 23rd March 2018

I am pleased to announce our school has arranged a second trip to Gilwell Park Residential Outdoor Centre at Chingford, London for our Primary children Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Our children had a fantastic experience last year and we had some great feedback from our children, parents and staff hence we have arranged our second trip. Gilwell Residential Outdoor Centre hosts the London Scout Adventures and has been run by the Scouts for over 100 years where they have delivered opportunities and activities to millions of young people. They are founded on famous Scout values and are proud to offer expertise to a new generation of young people.

The purpose of the trip is to afford a group of children a chance to have an outdoor learning experience that could potentially help them to discover the best in themselves, and also giving them opportunities to develop their skills and confidence. Today outdoor learning is still considered one of the best ways to transform lives and future prospects.

The children who attend this trip to Gilwell Park will participate in many planned Scout activities that will create a big sense of self achievement, both educationally and socially.  These various activities for children include Campfire, Climbing wall, Zip wire, Archery and much more. All activities are led by a Gilwell Park Scout Instructor during the day alongside members of our school staff.
