Nottinghamshire Scouts


Over 600 Cub Scouts and 200 adult volunteers from across Nottinghamshire launched their centenary in style at a gigantic ice-skating and swimming pool party at the Doncaster Dome.

The four hour ‘cool-pool party’ was a non-stop activity session, complete with party food, birthday cake, loads of games and bags of excitement.

The Cubs made a splash in a multi-pool water wonderland of geysers, fountains, jets and airbeds in their very own sub-tropical Amazonian adventure. They made new friends as they took to the waves, steered the rapids and shot the slides.

Then they strapped on their ice-skates and set off to explore the Ice Caps on two interconnecting ice pads, complete with ramps, jumps and buckets of fun!

The County wanted to provide something ‘wild’ and different to kick-off their year-long celebrations. So after listening to groups of Cubs they set to planning this spectacle, as Dan Wood ACC (Cub Scouts) explains “The youngsters were clear they wanted to do something different to launch their centenary, so we listened and designed an event they wanted! We’re so pleased to have over 800 Cubs and Leaders joining in; it will be wet, wild and a real fun adventure.”

Chief Scout, Bear Grylls commented: “Cubs 100 is going to be one of the biggest celebrations that Scouting has ever seen. I am so proud of all the Cub Scouts in all our Packs and all of the leaders who give them so much adventure every week. If you’re an adult and want to experience more adventure in your life then join us and get involved as a volunteer helping out as a Cub Scout leader. Get ready for a fun, wild and empowering time!”


We're looking for an enthusiastic, inspirational 18 - 24 year-old to blaze a trail as the first ever Nottinghamshire Youth Commissioner.

You'll champion the views, wants and feelings of our young people and help us to ensure that young people are at the heart of all we do and aspire to be.

Irrespective of your background or Scouting experience, if you think you have what it takes to inspire, motivate and make Scouting in Nottinghamshire more youth-led, or know somebody who does, then we'd love to hear from you!
