Badge Day - Gilwell

Written by

Badge Day - Gilwell Park 15th June 2019

As advertised in our December newsletter, we are looking to hold a badge day at Gilwell on Saturday 15th June with events for all sections, culminating with Mass in the early evening and our annual “summer clean” of the Catholic Chapel. Groups who want to combine this with an overnight camp at Gilwell and take advantage of many activities on offer can book this directly with the Centre.

So that we can assess potential numbers, please let me know if you are interested in joining this by the end of January with indicative numbers so we can confirm the booking.

If you already have plans for June but would be interested in a similar day in 2020, please also let me know.
