4th Hemel visit Brownsea Island

4th hemel Brownsea Island 2013Scouts from 4th Hemel Hempstead spent the weekend on Brownsea Island (the location of the experimental camp in 1907 which led to Baden-Powell starting Scouting).

The picture to the right is of them at the stone which “commemorates the experimental camp of 20 boys held on this site from 1st August 1907 by Robert Baden-Powell, later Lord Baden-Powell of Gilwell, founder of the Scout and Guide Movements”.

A great weekend of fun and celebration of Scouting’s history.
