Last weekend 18 of the scouts travelled up to Gilwell Scout Adventures Campsite to take part in the national event “Scarefest”.
A Halloween themed camp with a huge array of activities during the day rangeing from Archery; climbing; dodgems; pumpkin carving; arts and crafts to name but a few.
In the evenings is when it gets scary, the scouts get a dress up and gilwell puts together a few scare mazes with staff dressed up to make the scouts scream as they went around. A large firework display was also put on during Saturday evening to bring the event to a close.
Although it was a bit wet and muddy, everyone had a great time and the leaders were especially happy being able to watch the Rugby on the big screen in one of the cinema rooms.
