Scouts get stuck in at Winter camp

Scouts from Hemel Hempstead joined 3,000 others for an action packed annual winter camp in Chingford last weekend.

Boys and girls from the 1st Kings Langley enjoyed activities including abseiling, zorbing, go-karting and white water rafting at the Gilwell Park camp site in west Essex.

Nearly 1,000 voluntary adult leaders accompanied the Scouts, aged between 10 and 18, for the two night trip, during which they stayed in tents and cooked on open fires.

Explorers Scouts and Scouts from 4th Hemel Hempstead are braving the elements this weekend too, at the “Fire & Ice” event held at Tolmers campsite in Cuffley.
