Gilwell Heritage - Akela Has Returned To Gilwell Park

Akela Has Returned To Gilwell Park

One of the wonderful things about Gilwell is the sudden appearance of the unexpected when walking around the Park. Take a stroll down Somers walk to the Council Rock above the Lochan and if you are very quiet you will be rewarded by the sight of Akela.
What a perfect place for your pack to celebrate an important milestone in the life of a cub or leader. If you are fortunate enough to be camping at Gilwell a visit to this area and a Grand Howl is mandatory.


Akela or the grey wolf was carved a few years ago and has at last been placed at the foot of the large granite boulder, known as Council Rock, by the Gilwell Heritage team.
