Back to Gilwell

Saturday August 5th, 2023 10am to 2pm

Check-in starts at 9:30am

What’s it all about? It’s about a day of FUN and games, reminiscing and laughs including lunch by the famous “Road Kill Café”, with the goal of fundraising to add funding to the Northeast Georgia Council Wood Badge SCHOLARSHIP FUND!  

Who can attend? Anyone who has earned or is working on his or her Wood Badge Beads may attend. Beads do not have to be from NEGA; they can be from any WB Course – anywhere – after all, we are ‘Troop 1’. We encourage you to bring your friends from other councils with you. 
What time does it start / end? Initial plans are: Check in at 9:30am at the dining hall. Lunch will be at 12:30pm with slide shows and special awards. We expect to finish by 2pm.
What do we wear? That’s easy – you may come in your “patrol garb”, course T-shirt, Class A (Field uniform), Class B (Activity uniform), casual dress, kilt, or a Tux if you like. Patrol flags are encouraged as well. 
Will we be in patrols? – Of course! All Beavers present will form one giant Beaver Patrol, elect a Patrol Leader and take part in the events as one massive Beaver patrol. The same goes for all the other patrols.  Gilwell assembly will be by patrol order. 
What’s the cost? Cost to attend will be $20.00, which will include a special, limited production, patch and lunch. Extra patches will be available to pre order or purchase at the reunion for $5.00 each. We will have a limited supply of prior reunion patches for sale at the reunion until supplies run out. We encourage you and your patrol to come with your buckets of spare change to use in some of the games and to donate to the NEGA WB Scholarship Fund to help other Scouters attend Wood Badge. And, of course, we will accept folding money and checks (made payable to BSA) for Scholarship Fund contributions. 

To help us plan for enough food please email Jim Loring @ by July 30th to let him know you plan to attend
