You will need a unique PIN to register for Cuboree. Click the "Get My PIN" button just below the Cuboree logo to do this.
Your contact details will be confirmed and the PIN will be emailed to the primary contact’s email address registered with Scouts Victoria.
More information is available about Cuboree on the Cuboree X FAQ page.
On this webpage, click on the “Get my PIN” button that is under the Cuboree logo. This will take you to a webpage where you will enter your contact details. This is matched to your membership record with Scouts Victoria. If a match is found, an email will be sent to the primary contact listed in the membership record. The email will contain your PIN, membership number and a link to login to create your application form.
Having the correct email address is important, as without a valid email address, you cannot receive your PIN and apply for Cuboree. Email addresses can easily be changed by contacting either your Group Leader or Membership Support. Unfortunately, the Cuboree Admin team cannot change the email address on file for you.
Once your Scouts Victoria membership record is updated and your email details are correct you can request the Cuboree PIN by clicking on the "Get My PIN" button on this webpage.
You will need to upload a photo of the applicant before your application will be approved by your Group Leader. The photo may be used for identification purposes at Cuboree by welfare or medical teams. A photo taken on a smartphone or camera is fine but must be a head-and-shoulders shot of the person looking directly at the camera. Guidelines can be found here (Cuboree X - Photo Guide)
At previous events, we have had to reject photos and contact applicants to get a better image. Problem photos have included group photos, youth in dress-ups, face-paint or costumes, and photos that are too far away. You can help us out by ensuring the photo is appropriate.
If you log back into your application, in the 'Applicant Details' tab there is an 'Applicant Details' heading. Directly under the heading there is a blue picture, directly under that is a link 'Upload Photo'. Click on that link, and follow the prompts to upload a photo.
