Welcome to the Dundee District Scouts
Dundee Scouting offers challenges and adventure to almost a thousand young people and adults across the city, and is part of a UK organisation with half a million members.
We do some pretty amazing things in Dundee Scouting, but for us, adventure is a way of life and not just an activity or expedition.
Our Scouts grow in confidence by trying out new skills and stretching themselves. Whether it’s an Explorer trying out his French on an international trip or a Scout leading his Patrol for the first time, each time we challenge ourselves, it’s a step forward. When a Scout stands up to a bully, or sticks up for what they believe in; that’s an adventure!
Scouting is open to all young people aged 6 to 25, of every faith and background. There are also plenty of opportunities for adults to become involved as Leaders, Assistants or Administrators.
Cub Flag 2015
Fourteen teams representing nine packs took part in the 2015 Cub Flag at Douglaswood.
Friday evening was a relaxed night of fun games after the pitching of the tents and the unexpected arrival of around 100 people from North East Fife District who arrived for a District camp of their own.
A relatively early night by cub standards led to most of them being up very early in the morning and before many of the leaders.
Following breakfast and a few warm up activities the Cub Flag started in earnest with four zones being covered over the two days. Zones included activities such as shelter building, traditional scouting, compass, first aid, archery and kite flying.
Bases stopped in the evening for games and a campfire with North East Fife District. Saturday night saw the rain which had threatened all day eventually come although thankfully not until everyone was tucked up in their tents.
The wet weather somewhat subdued the Cubs in the morning but they were soon warmed up with a warm breakfast and a few indoor activities to lift their spirits.
A few changes where possible were made to the bases to allow for the weather before the Cubs set of on the last part of the competition.
In no time at all the bases were over just as the rain stopped. The Cubs then took down their tents and had some lunch before the final result was announced.
In third place was the 22nd a, second was the 20th a and the clear winners were the 32nd much to the delight and surprise to everyone connected to the pack. A big well done to the 32nd who were a thoroughly deserving victor.
