On my recent family holiday to the New Forest and Southampton, my family and I went on a day-trip to Brownsea Island; the home of Scouting.
Brownsea was the site of the very first scout camp, held by Lord Baden-Powell himself. Only accesible by boat, the Island is now run by the National trust, but there’s still a scout centre and campsite.
I found it great as I got to visit the Scout Stone, a stone marking where Baden-Powell officially started the movement and where I also bought a very nice necker and woggle.
It was a great day, and the Island was beautiful even if my sister (not a scout) found it boring!
