Outdoor Education

Description

Scout Adventures Gilwell Park, situated on the London-Essex border on the edge of Epping Forest, offers 108 acres of beautiful woodland, amazing activities, lodges and camping.

Less than 25 minutes by train from central London and just 8 minutes' drive from the M25, the location of Scout Adventures Gilwell Park means that the great outdoors, and a great adventure, is within easy reach of the capital and beyond.

No fire safety brief given upon arrival - evacuation points No safety checks of children's harnesses No one to welcome us on arrival Rooms not ready upon arrival Staff often walked off from the groups en route to activities Food was great Issues with checking out meaning we were 45 minutes late for our coach (November 2018 - Primary School)

Our guide/leader Augusto was wonderful- helpful and thoughtful and great with the children. We had a few issues with the centre though- broken window in accommodation, nuts in food provided (despite us informing them we had a child with allergies) We are looking at alternatives for next year. (June 2018 - Primary School)




It was such a positive experience for the children. The Gilwell staff were very patient, kind and accommodating -- they gave the children many great experiences and memories to remember! (May 2018 - Primary School)




Generally went well. Most activity leaders were great, but a couple were a bit abrupt with the children. Wide range of activities to choose from, spacious site. Catering (Chubbies) was fantastic. Jack Petchey lodge was good. Dorothy Hughes lodge was very dated and poor accommodation - we wouldn't use this lodge again. A few small blips on arrival as there is a new system in place, hopefully these will be sorted out before next year. (May 2018 - Primary School)
