The cubs celebrated by camping earlier this month

Over 360 cubs recently celebrated the 100th anniversary of cub scouting by spending the weekend camping.

Scouts aged 8 to 10 from across Bromley took part in a Cubs 100 Adventure Camp at the start of month, with challenging activities testing the young scouts abilities.

Across the weekend the youngsters took part in a leap of faith, abseiling, climbing and more.

Adult volunteer, Sue David from 3rd Petts Wood said: “Our cubs had some wonderful opportunities to try new activities which they had never seen before, some things tested their courage and others their team work.”

Total Cub Scout numbers in Bromley District Scout have risen from 1025 in 2015 and now stand at 1115.
