Another fantastic, action packed day in the sunshine at Gilwell on Thursday.  Mrs Sansom came to see us and after dinner we all joined together at the camp fire.  Roasted marshmallows around  the fire was a wonderful way to spend our last evening.  Mini Olympics this morning after breakfast and then after lunch we will be on our way home.

Mrs Wilson and Mrs Randlesome visited us yesterday and were in awe at our bravery when tackling the various climbing challenges and were so impressed with our teamwork and support of each other during all of the activities.  They joined us for dinner and  watched us participate in the Wide Game activity before leaving.

Another full day ahead of fun at Gilwell.
