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.
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

Over the weekend cubs carried out various tasks based in five zones covering the following themes - Foods of the World, Games of the World, Photography, The Cube tv programme and Scouting.
These activities ran throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday morning, while Friday and Saturday evenings and nights were more relaxed with Fun Games, Campfire, DVD and a Onesie Disco.
On the Cube Cubs had to solve many different puzzles as they could in the given time with some harder than others.

Photography involved cubs taking photos around Douglaswood, uploading onto a computer and then printing their own calendars.
Scouting required cubs to carry out simple pioneering, grid refrences and first aid all skills identified as ones cubs need more practice on.
The final base was Games of the World which saw cubs carrying out a trail similar to a Treasure Trail and other challenges based on games of the world
At the end of the weekend in a very close finish the 45th were the winners beating the 7th in to second on a tie break followed by the 20th a further point behind.
