The Chattahoochee District 2013 Cub-O-Ree - "Open Season"
 
The Cub-O-Ree is back by popular demand! 

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 outdoor experience. 

Registration for the Cub-O-Ree Fall Camp-Out: http://www.pack236.com/2013registercuboree

Only $10 per attendee, $30 max per family by check or PayPal.

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. 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 20.  The campsite location will be posted at the front of the Woodruff Scout Camp.  Families are welcome to come Friday evening, Saturday morning, or when they can; the more the better but we will take what we can get :).

On Saturday, September 21, the opening ceremony will begin at 8:30am. Following the ceremony, 10-stations will be open until 4:00pm. You are free to participate in whichever station you like and spend however much time you like at each.  In addition, there will be pre-set kickball games which we will participate in, given enough interest. Saturday evening will consist of a series of programs (weather permitting) and a Camp Fire at the Pirrung Amphitheater (the main one).

Overview:
A) Registration is required by Sunday, September 15th and is $10 per attendee with a max of $30 per family to cover most (but not all) of the costs. 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 setup throughout the camp.  Some stations will have guides to assist in the activity while others are self-sufficient.  Participants are invited to participate in as many stations as they choose and spend however long they like. It is "Open Season", do what you like.

C) There will be 10 different stations including BB range, Archery, Cubmobile Racing, Fishing and others. The stations will vary based on the ranks of the participants in the groups. The stations are designed to accommodate participants of all ages to attend. For example, Tigers and Webelos will be able to participate at the same time.

E) Some activities will only be allowed to be completed once due to limited number of supply. Each participant will be provided a "Hunting License" that they will need to present at various stations.

F) We need "Volunteers" from the Pack to run the stations. For every 8-registered scouts, we will ask for 1-adult volunteer. A volunteer will not be asked to run a station for the entire day. (Please note that you must be BSA certified to run the BB and Archery stations). 

G) We will have pack lunches on Saturday for the scouts that will be eaten on the trail.

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 September 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
