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.
Once you have registered, your Group Leader needs to log in and accept the application. Once this is done you will be emailed the invoice. If you haven't received your invoice, please speak to your Group Leader!
You will need to log in using the “G.L. Login” button on this page under the Cuboree logo. Use your Extranet username and password as your credentials.
You accept applications the same way you have done for previous Kangarees, Cuborees and Jamborees. – For more information, here is a pdf document with step by step instructions to help you through the process.
Please disregard the Police Check item in your Cuboree workflow. This should not be displayed.
Please proceed with the approval process as normal, the records flagged for Police Check will still move to the ‘Accepted’ status once you complete your activities.
Please discuss with your Cub Scout Leader or Group Leader this requirement, so they are aware of your circumstances.
Two Cuboree applications are required:
One for the Cub
One for the adult carer
When registering your Cub, be sure to tick that a carer will be attending and include the name of the carer.
The carer must be registered with Scouts Victoria, hold a Working With Children Check and have completed the Child Safe Scouting eLearning Module. Your Group Leader will assist with this. Once the carer has their registration number, they can apply online.
The carer will need to complete a separate Cuboree online application. They should apply as soon as possible after submission of the Cub’s application.
When completing the carer’s application, under Work Preferences “Have you already accepted a service or activity leader role?” click on the “Yes” button. New entry fields will display.
Select “Other: Specify” for the role type.
In the “Details of Other” text box, enter “Carer for [youth name]”.
Cuboree is open to all current, Registered Cub Scouts born on or after 12th April 2009. We maintain the upper age for Cuboree as most older Cub Scouts will benefit more from the challenges offered by linking to the Scout section. Requests for over-age applications are considered on a case-by-case basis and approval would only be granted for exceptional circumstances.
Parent helpers are more than welcome, provided they have approval from their Group Leader. It is expected that parents attending are doing so to assist their Unit with catering or helping at Cuboree with activities, and as such will be assigned a role during Cuboree. Parent helpers must be registered with Scouts Victoria, hold a Working With Children Check and have completed the Child Safe Scouting eLearning Module. Once they have their registration number, they can apply online.

Yes please! All Leaders, you can sign up to come to Cuboree. When you put in your work preferences, you can select to come as a line leader or cook in the Unit, or you can choose to be a Service Leader in one of the many support areas including Activities.
Updated 2020-12-14: The intention of the Camp Out Badge is for Cub Scouts and their Leaders to gain experience camping under canvas in a bush setting. It was developed to assist in the process of getting ready for major camps like Cuboree.
We would hope that you continue to plan for Unit Holidays and Sleepovers between now and Cuboree, however if along the way camps don’t happen, then please just do your best to help the Cub Scouts be prepared for camping under canvas.
At the end of the day, it is up to the Cub Scout Leaders to best prepare their Cub Scouts to ensure that they have a fun and enjoyable experience at Major Events.
The criteria for the Camp Out Badge can be accessed here.
Usually, we have Cub contingents from the ACT, NSW, Tasmania and Queensland attend. We made the difficult decision to not include interstate contingents this year, to minimise the financial risk to them (if, say, state borders were closed at short notice). We hope they will be able to return at the next Cuboree (in September 2023).
As O-Day will be online for Cuboree X, no merchandise collection will happen on this day. We are hoping to be able to offer collection from a few locations in the week prior to Cuboree and then also allow pickup from Gilwell during bump-in or at the event.
Merchandise for those in the lines with Cub Scouts will be collected as a complete Camping Unit (Pack). Locations for pick up will be shared after applications close and the date for delivery of merchandise from our supplier is confirmed.
