The campfire pit of Gilwell Ada’s Hoeve suits 500 people, if we sit tight even 600. Campfires are always a lot of fun, but only with many scouts. During the Saturday night briefing, we will inquire about a joint campfire. If we have enough people, we will organise the joint campfire all together. Besides the scouts of Gilwell Ada’s Hoeve, we will also invite the scouts of the Scouting campsite Eerde.
