Cuboree X - Planning for April 2021
The aim is to run Cuboree X at Gilwell Park from Monday 12th to Friday 16th April 2021. Yes, that’s right, we are still planning for a 4-night, 5-day adventure-filled event in a similar style to previous Cuborees. This is subject to government and Scouting guidelines around COVID-19; we will be keeping a close eye on how this progresses.
Recognising the financial impact many families are facing, the committee have worked hard to reduce the cost of the event. The new fee structure is:
Cub Scouts $300
All others $150 (Leaders, Venturers, Rovers, Adult Helpers)
This includes the bus travel to and from Gilwell, meals at the event and onsite activities.
We are still working on when to open Applications as we consider all of the 'moving parts' relating to the government regulations, event set-up requirements and the impact on members and their families.
Cuboree is for Cub Scouts, so any youth in this section younger than 12 years at the time of Cuboree can attend. They must have been born on or after the 12th April 2009 and meet the requirements of the Camp Out badge (best COVID efforts).
Please, don’t hold Cubs back for Cuboree if they are ready to go up to Scouts; the challenges and opportunities in the Scout section (such as getting ready for the Australian Jamboree in January 2022) are more enjoyable for the older youth.
We all know that under current restrictions Cuboree can’t happen right now, but we are planning for a brighter horizon in 2021 with the anticipation that the situation improves.
Further information will be shared with Cubs, Groups and District Leaders as it becomes available.
