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.
This years Cub Football took place at Douglas Sports Centre on a Sunday afternoon with 41 Cubs along with Leaders and Parents in attendance.
Like in the last few years cubs from all packs were mixed in to teams to allow all packs to participate no matter how few they had attending. Teams this year were named after various cartoons and as always proved opular.
The event was mainly played in good spirits and every team won a few games at least and kept the tournament close to the very end with only a few points seperating the top teams.
The winning team along with the leader who acted as team manager for the day.
Cub Year of Adventure
In the lead up to the Cub Centenary Year in 2016 Cub Packs throughout the UK have been given the opportunity to take part in the Year of Adventure throughout 2015 with each month being allocated a given theme.
The first month was March and the last one will be December 2015. The options are vast and packs can cover so many different aspects throughout the year. If you are in the Cubs and don't know about this please ask your leader about this.
