Last weekend, Scouts from across Essex met up with 3,000 others from across the UK to welcome in a new year of adventure whilst camping at Gilwell Park in North East London. Some Essex groups were attending for the first time others are seasoned Winter campers with this being their 10th year at the event!

The annual Winter Camp in January provides the opportunity for Scouts to take part in over seventy different adventurous and fun activities ranging from abseiling to zorbing, as well as a brand new activity of white water rafting at the Lea Valley White Water Centre.
