Welcome from Lord Baden-Powell.

Welcome to the 1st Gilwell Park website, a home to all Wood Badge holders. Scouting is a worldwide Movement and there are Wood Badge holders in every corner of the world. You will be able to view photographs, documents and the vision  for the future of Gilwell Park. Many of us will have special memories of Gilwell while many more of you will have your own stories from your local Wood Badge course. Here is a place we can share these experiences together.

Gilwell Park is often called the home of Scouting and I’m sure you will join me in registering, exploring the website as well as supporting Gilwell in building its future. As a constant reminder of what we aspire to achieve this has now become my home page, perhaps it could be yours too?

We all believe that young people are the future and deserve the best possible leadership. By even being here you are showing that you believe that as well and almost certainly will be making or have made a significant contribution to that ethic.

Thank you for all you do in Scouting.
