The camp got off to a great start with groups arriving throughout the day from around the world.
In the early evening all the campers joined together for the first Gathering.
There was live music from the band and some great games to get no know each other and join in together.
After the gathering there was a barbeque to get to know people a bit better.
All the staff are now on site and the build team is in full flow. Groups from Norway and else’s have started setting up there camp and the flag poles are in place.
If you are coming to Ignite in a coach, you will want to approach the site from Chingford along Bury Road, not via Daws Hill as it is not suitable for coaches. Click on the image before for a map showing how to get to Gilwell Park.
The marques are going up and groups from Norway, France and Belgium have arrived. The build team have also arrived and are getting started building of the camp.
Today has been the hottest day of the year in London but should cool down by the weekend.
With 2 days to go until the camp officially opens, this is what the main field looks like this morning.
It’s only three days until Ignite 2013 starts. Tomorrow, the wardens team move into the site and begin building the camp. Today all the teams are doing the last minute preparations.
The weather forecast for Gilwell on Saturday is a pleasant 22°C and slightly warmer on Sunday so remember to pack your sun screen.
The map below shows the layout of the camp – we’re all together in the large Branchett field with most activities taking place in that area as well.
