In pictures: Scouts and guides enjoy WINGS week at Windsor Great Park

Scouts and guides from across the world have converged on Windsor Great Park this week for the WINGS experience.


 

There is something for everyone at the event, which has attracted young people aged from six to 18.

Adventurous activities like climbing and caving mix with traditional scouting activities like starting a fire without a match. 

There is also a chance to get involved in more community projects involving the future of the mighty oaks and the wildlife reserves in the park.

You can even learn circus skills.

Young people started arriving on Saturday and the activities continue until the end of the week

Richard Shepherd from the WINGS team said: "It is fabulous. There is a truly international feel here. We have young people aged six to 18 from 41 countries, including New Zealand, Panama, South America and Nigeria.

"They are meeting, generating friendships and setting up camps."
