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 Christmas Party
After a two year absence the Cubs District a Party returned with a smaller than expected turn out coming along but still having plenty of fun. Packs represented were the 7th, 22nd and 49th
Games with a difference along with some traditional ones were played, ranging from Pass the Parcel and musical bumps to the more unusual Santa's Sack, The 12 Days of Christmas Relay and Dressing the Snowman.
DRESSING THE SNOWMAN
Following the games Santa took time out of his busy schedule to pay a visit to the party and to deliver some gifts to the Cubs.

49th Win JV Muir
11 teams representing 8 packs gathered on warm September evening in Dundee Botanic Garden for the 2014 JV Muir Trophy.
The cubs had to make their way around the garden looking for answers to a number of questions. Most packs found most of the answers although some found some harder to find than others.
Once all the answers were handed in 5 Cubs from the 7th and 26th were presented with their Chief Scout Silver Award.
The results were then announced which were
1st - 49th
2nd - 45th
3rd - 20th
