CUB SCOUT YEAR OF ADVENTURE 2015
This month we are kicking off the Cub Scout Centenary celebrations with a year of adventurous programme activities, called the Year of Adventure. Each month of 2015 will have a different theme and packs are encouraged to have a go at two or more activities that are a little bit different from the norm. March is the 'All Things 100' month.
The Scout Association have put together a fantastic resource to help leaders put their 2015 programmes together but our very own leaders from Nottinghamshire have added to this with dozens more ideas for each month here. Together both of these links make a great list of suggestions, helping leaders to deliver their own version of the Year of Adventure.
If you would like to contribute additional ideas to share with the rest of the county then you can do so at any point during this year.
How many adventures can your Cubs have each month?

CUB SCOUT CENTENARY 2015 & 2016
Today we are launching plans for the next two years of Cub Scouting as we lead in to the centenary celebrations. Here is a pack of information that will help you build a programme around this impressive century milestone.
This pack contains details on the Year of Adventure in 2015, the Centenary in 2016 and the county events we shall be putting on to support you throughout this time.
I hope you will join me in promoting what is sure to be a thrilling couple of years in Cub Scouting and I look forward to working with you all to deliver it.

CUB SCOUT YEAR OF ADVENTURE ACTIVITY DAYS
What a Year of Adventure it has been so far!
As you know, each month of 2015 has been given a theme leading up to the celebrations for the centenary of Cub Scouting. It has been great to see so many Cubs doing so many exciting activities these past few months that are just that little bit different and more adventurous than before.
As detailed in our Cub Scout Centenary booklet, we are providing three events to help support you in providing these Year of Adventure activities that Cubs around the UK are taking part in.
The remaining one is:
• Up High Activity Day, Hollygate Scout Camp, 20th September
Cub Scouts and their leaders from all over Nottinghamshire are invited to attend. Booking is open now through the county office: firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to seeing you there!
