Purpose of the Cub-O-Ree: Scouting is outing! No scout should forego the pleasure and reward of an outdoor experience in any season. With proper preparation, activities can be quite valuable in all facets of a scouts' personal growth. It is the intent of this program to present units in the Districts an opportunity for an adventuresome and vigorous outdoor experience. 

Association with scouts in other units fosters a feeling of fellowship and better understanding among all scouts and scouters present. Remember that Cub Scouts is for families. The Cub-O-Ree not only invites Cub Scouts, but siblings are welcome also. All of the activities are designed where anyone (boys and girls) over the age of 5 will be able to participate in a "Sibling Den". Our ultimate goal is to combine everything to give the scouts the opportunity to continue striving for the highest possible level of scouting achievement and to have FUN.

Check-in for the Cub-O-Ree at Woodruff Scout Camp starts after 5:00PM on Friday, September 30th.  The campsite location will be posted at the front of the Woodruff Scout Camp.

Overview:
A) Registration is required by Sunday, September 25th and is $15 per family. The Registration fee includes includes Cub-O-Ree activity supplies, patch’s, awards and food Saturday Lunch - Sunday Breakfast.

B) The Cub-O-Ree events will consist of various skill stations along a pre-determined course. At each station the "Mountain Man" will lead the group in the selected activity which will last 50 minutes. At the end of the session, a horn will sound to indicate the time to move to the next session. Each group will have 10 minutes to travel the course to their next determined station.

C) There will be 6 different stations including BB range, Sports I, Sports II, Crafts and “Mountain Man”. The stations will vary based on the Ranks of the participants in the groups. It will be important that Scouts in different ranks remain separated. For example the “craft” in the Tiger/Wolf station will be achievements for their ranks while the “craft” in the Bear/Webelos station will be focused on earning the Whittling Chip and making a carving. Tigers & Wolves will not be able to participate with the Bears & Webelos.

D) We need volunteers to run the stations. For every 8-registered scouts, we will ask for 1-adult volunteer. A volunteer will be asked to run a station for 2-sessions at a time and will not be asked to run a station for the entire day. (Please note that you must be BSA certified to run the BB station). The volunteer list is required upon registration. Volunteers will be contacted the week of September 25th with assignments and needs.

E) Scouts are to have a lunch that can be prepared on the trail (bring in day pack).

F) The Mountain Man Trading Post will be open after Session 1 and will have a small selection of snacks and other items at a minimal cost.

G) A Voluntary Hike, led by a Mountain Man Hiker, will be held from 4:30pm-5:30pm on Saturday. Those interested will meet at the flag poles.  (This fulfills a Tiger requirement)

H) Packs will be required to pack out their trash. You are aware of “Leave No Trace”. 

 
I)  No vehicles are allowed in camp sites overnight – any night. No vehicles are permitted to be driving past the main parking lot between 8:00am and 5:00pm Saturday.

J) The Plumbing will be on at all of the facilities. The Camp Director and the Ranger will have the combinations and will provide the rules

K) Remember to pack appropriately. This will be October in the mountains. It WILL be cool at night.

L)  Before camping, please review pages 22-26, 38-40, and 52-53 of the Guide to Safe Scouting.  http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/34416.pdf
