Welcome to Gilwell

Gilwell is the official Training Centre for the Gauteng Region. Since 1922 Scout Leaders and Scouts have been trained here and enjoyed good fun and comradeship over the weekends, as Scouts and Scouters will continue to do in the future.
 The park-like grounds of 3 hectares is situated on the south west corner of Florida Lake, 16 km from Johannesburg.
Whilst Gilwell is the official training centre, Scouts and Cubs are also welcome to camp here. For rates and bookings, please see our Bookings Page. For other enquiries, please see our Contact Page.
Old Scouts and friends are welcome to visit Gilwell at any time and are asked to contact the Warden on arrival.
