Calling all Superheroes!
Garden State Council Cub-o-Ree 2013
8 AM Saturday to 10 AM Sunday
Some of the greatest superheroes of our time are gathering at Pine Tree to strengthen their superpowers and share their unique skills. Come to this Council-wide parent-son event where:
Superman will be faster than a speeding BB.
The Hulk will do what he does best – SMASH!
Mr. Fantastic will stretch our imagination.
Captain America will renew our American pride.
The Human Torch will help us with fire building.
Spider-Man will discuss his spidey sense and apply his web skills towards some fancy knot work.
Also, learn about some lesser known superheroes (such as the Green Arrow who will lead our archery range) and create your own superhero!
Note: Scouts can sign-out as needed to attend sports or other activities.
For more information, contact: Scout Service Center at (609) 261-5850;
or Janet L. Boris at jlwbfromNJ@aol.com or 609-268-0828.
Please have a roster of all youth and adults attending ready before you start the registration process.
• All scouts camping overnight should be accompanied by a parent or adult.
(No siblings please.) (Note: Parents may designate one adult responsible for their son,
but no scout can share a tent with an adult who is not his parent or guardian.)
• Scouts attending only for the day may attend as a den with 2-deep leadership.
• Saturday lunch and dinner will be provided. Plan Sunday breakfast with your Pack or den.
• Check-in and camp set-up begins at 8:00 am Saturday. Upon arrival, you will be directed
to your campsite. Each campsite may include different Packs to fill the campsite space.
• This is an outdoor, tent-camping experience. Cabins are used for weather emergencies only.
• Each campsite must be inspected before campers leave. Camp will close 10 am Sunday.
• Camp rules apply to all participants to keep scouts safe while they have fun!
• Scouts can sign-out as needed to attend sports or other activities.
Cub-o-Ree Online Registration
The changes in Double Knot are creating some confusion and several families have made mistake in registering, which sometimes leads to overpayment, or mis-registering a participant. Please pass this information to your Pack families to help them complete the registration properly.
To Enter a Cub/Parent PAIR
Enter the scout’s name, then select his rank, specifying if you are registering either daytime only or camping overnight. This shows a charge of $45, which is the price of a “pair” because it includes that scout’s parent.
Then “add” the Parent to the registration.
Enter the parent’s name and select the “Parent” option to register. The “Parent” registration has no charge because the mom/dad is included in the cost of the scout’s registration. Do NOT select “Additional Parent” for the parent registered in a pair, since the “additional” parent has a $20 charge.
To Enter a Cub/Parent TRIO––2 scouts/1 parent OR 1 scout/2 parents
Enter the first scout’s name, then select his rank, specifyint is included in the cost of the first scout’s registration. Do NOT select “Additional Parent” for the first parent registered or you will be charged an additional $20.
After you register the first scout and Parent, you may add an “Additional” Scout (by rank) or an “Additional Parent” and the cost will be added to the total -- $65 for a Trio. For the second scout registered in a TRIO, be sure to select “Additional” scout (by rank), or you will be charged $45 for t. This way, the adult has 1 tent spot and the two boys will need to share a separate tent.
Additional Registrations & Other Information
If you are registering other scouts from your Pack, continue to “Add” additional participants in the same way as the first Pair or Trio.
If you are registering additional adults, please add them as “Additional Parent.” If you have additional adults who are not sharing a tent with other family members (such as a leader attending without his/her son), please note that in the Comment section so sufficient tents sites are reserved.
If your Pack leaders have agreed to be responsible for additional scouts “daytime only” without a parent or guardian, these scouts may be added as “Additional scouts — daytime only” but must be registered with a responsible adult. Packs/Dens must maintain 2-deep leadership for all boys not with the their parents. Packs should obtain the permission forms and emergency medical care releases as you do for Pack events. Please note in the Comments section that you will be responsible for a group of boys who will be picked up in the evening.
In the final “comment” section on the online registration, please also list ANY additional information we should know, including any dietary limitations or restrictions, food allergies, or medical issues. We will try to work with parents as best as possible, but we must know in advance.
Each online registration asks for a Pack contact. If you know your Pack is registering as a group, please try to list the appropriate Pack contact. However, even if you do not know who your Pack contact is, you will still be put with your son’s Pack.
Please bring the following:
• Scout Uniform and/or Pack T-shirt
• Very important: Refillable water bottle
or cup for drinking during the day
• Rain gear (the events run rain or shine)
• Bug spray and/or sunscreen
To camp overnight Saturday, also bring:
• Personal camping equipment (including tent and sleeping bags)
• Changes of clothing (bring extra)
• Sunday breakfast food & gear
