Dubai Gem Scouts Group visited U.K on the 25th March for a Scouts and Guides’ Educational Expedition for duration of eight days and were accompanied by their teachers, Mrs. Laxmi and Mr. Salman. There were 9 students who participated in this trip.
The scouts and guides stayed in the luxurious Hotel in Ilford. The trip provided a series of interesting yet challenging activities when we were taken to the Belchamps and Thriftwood Scouts Camp, Essex where we did activities such as: The Leap of Faith, Archery, Assault Course, Axe Throwing, Kayaking and Canoeing.
Apart from these activities, we visited many famous tourist attractions such as The London Eye in Central London, Natural History and Science Museum in South Kingston where we got an enriching experience to learn so much about scientific and historic discoveries and fun facts which were astonishing. A visit to the Trinity College, Cambridge was inspiring and informative because of its rich history which fascinated us a lot. Entertainment such as shopping, playing in a theme park and taking a walk in a park were one of the very exciting moments of this trip.
Overall, the trip was rewarding keeping us mentally and physically fit and it was mesmerizing and definitely worth remembering as its all about learning in a fun manner.
