Welcome to Gilwell

Gilwell 24 is a 24 hour event and 2016 was our biggest and best yet at Gilwell Park in London/Essex. Our next event takes place between 7th to 9th July 2017. We are already planning the 2017 event and bookings will be open soon.

Gilwell 24 is 24 hours of non-stop action! Can you stay awake for 24 hours? With over 50 activities across the site to keep you entertained – from fairground rides to bands and a huge disco, scuba diving, slack-lining to t-shirt upcycling and everything in between!

Can you also stay awake long enough to complete our Gilwell 24 Gauntlet Challenge in the middle of the night and make it through to the survivors photo?

In 2016 we started at 0900 on Saturday the 11th July and then we kept everyone fully entertained until 0900 on Sunday the 12th July. In addition we hosted a disco to welcome those staying overnight in preparation.

Gilwell 24 2015:

Our 24 hour programme will keep you totally entertained. Open to all Explorer Scouts and Senior Section Guides aged 14-18.

Bookings are now closed.
