Scouting is one of the great success stories of the last 100 years. From an experimental camp for 20 boys on Brownsea island in 1907, it has spread to 216 contries and territories, with an estimated 28 million members.
Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement, originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a ‘look-in’. In nearly a century, the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people, and these days admits girls as well as boys.
Within Blaydon District we have 5 cub packs which means there’s plenty of adventure around. You can find out more information about Cub Scouts by using the links to the right.
