This is a quick introduction to get you started on secret codes for Scout and Cub meetings, which was originally put together for SCOUTS South Africa. Codes make great games for Scouts and Cubs of all ages, and they're not too difficult to learn.

This collection starts with some beginner codes and secret writing techniques for Cubs and Scouts of all ages, then several "Substitution" codes which are a bit harder, and then a few tougher puzzles...

Finally, follow the link to our special Challenge Code. The prize has been won (by the first South African Scout to solve the code), but please write to us if you solve it and we will list your name on the site.
