1st Woodford Halse Cub Scouts celebrated 100 years of Cub Scouting by taking part in a special Cubs 100 day at ZSL London Zoo.

The visit included a special trail for the Cubs to follow and a chance to get close to the animals.

The visit was an opportunity for the Cubs to have fun, undertake challenging activities and complete badges.

Cub Scout Ella Rose said, “I’ve tried lots of new things whilst being a Cub Scout but this was the best yet. I especially liked getting close to the giraffes.”

Adult volunteer Jennie Curtis said: “The Cubs really enjoyed themselves at the zoo and even the train and bus ride was part of the adventure.”

Scouting seeks to transform the lives of young people by providing an inspiring programme of everyday adventure, with over 200 activities on offer, including camps, climbing and water zorbing.

Chief Scout Bear Grylls said: “I am super proud to see so many young people renewing their Cub Scout Promise to do their best and help other people.

“I am excited to see Scout numbers continue to rise across the UK and the big reasons for this are the adventures made possible by the amazing volunteers from 1st Woodford Halse Scout Group.”
