Over 150 other Cubs from all over Daventry and District were invited to a special exclusive screening of the Jungle Book at the Cineworld Cinema at Northampton Sixfields. The event took place as part of the 100 years of Cub Scouting celebrations happening throughout this year. The Jungle Book has a special place in Cub Scout history as it was used by Robert Baden Powell to base his Scouting to younger members and launched Wolf Cubs in 1916. The film was the perfect way to educate the Cubs on its history. The leaders still have Cub Scout names from The Jungle Book such as Akela, Baloo and Bagheera.
Cub Scouts and volunteers from all over Daventry and District have taken part in a Cubs 100 event which also celebrated Founders Day. The event took place on Sunday 21st February at Sulgrave Manor. The Cubs took part in a truly Tudor experience which included learning about Tudor life and writing with a quill and ink. They also had a guided tour of ancestral home of George Washington and grounds and got the opportunity to meet some American Scouts from the American Air Base in Croughton. The event was the perfect way to have fun, undertake challenging activities, complete badges and awards and try something the young people hadn’t done before.
A fantastic event this year thanks to all involved, setting the hall up, serving refreshments etc. A special thanks to the Davies family of Flore for running the event again this year.
Well done to all teams entering.

2nd Daventry Scouts Belgium Trip
On Sunday 27th March 2016 2nd Daventry Scouts met at the group HQ to start their yearly Easter Camp. For the last 3 years, the troop has had a tradition of going on a week long Easter Camp. The first year was a week in Derbyshire and involved climbing, abseiling, visiting some caves and generally having a good time. The second year involved a week in Devon, spending time on the beach, going for boat trips and visiting a Penguin Sanctuary. This year we decided to push the boat out literally and visited Belgium!
