CUB SCOUT ACTIVITY DAY 21st SEPTEMBER 2013
If you're wondering what to do for your Cub Pack in September then why not book your pack on the Cub Scout Activity Day! Taking place on Saturday 21st September 2013 at Sherbrooke Campsite the day will have worlds of activities, fun and adventure!
The event will focus on the Global Challenge Award. An activity pack will be released in July to use in the two weeks before the event. It will give Cub Scouts in every District a chance to achieve their challenge award. With four continents full of activities at the event and a fifth continent as an activity pack/programme on a plate it's set to be a great return to Scouting for all packs!
Mark this in your Pack's diary! (at just £8 per Cub it shouldn't be missed)

SCOUT NETWORK WEBSITE
New Scout Network site launched. Take a look now.
We are starting to look for outstanding examples of programmes and programme ideas to help us ensure we provide high quality support to you. Using programme ambassadors we hope to strengthen existing support teams so that our programmes for young people are consistently good. If you've got any ideas or you'd like to become a Programme Ambassador please let the Office know.
Do you have a skill or interest that you would be prepared to share with others? We are hoping to start a Notts Scouts Skills Directory, so if you are a keen photographer, gardener, astronomer, fluent linguist, scientist, aviator, caver or interested in motor sports, etc and would be willing to run an activity badge for another group then we would like to hear from you.
