Frequently Asked Questions
Please find below some frequently asked questions about Cuboree.
I registered, but I haven't received an invoice, did I do everything correctly?
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.
The system requires I list a home phone number, but I only have a mobile, what do I do?
If you only have a mobile phone, please put your mobile phone number in both the Home and Mobile Fields.
My Cub will be 11 years old before Cuboree starts, can they still come?
Cuboree is open to all current, registered Cub Scouts born on or after the 28th of September 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.
Can Parents come?
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 Pack with catering or helping at Cuboree with activities or other service areas, 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 mandatory eLearning Modules. Once they have their registration number, they can apply online.

I’m a leader (with or without a bunch of Cubs) from Interstate, can I come too?
Yes, we're happy to have Interstate Leaders and Cubs attend!
Please email the Cuboree Team with your contact details and we will be in touch.
I'm a Rover and I'm also a Leader, what fee will I be charged? Or I have been charged the wrong fee, what should I do?
Rovers who are also Leaders, and are working in Pack Lines will be charged the Leader Fee. Rovers who are also Leaders, who are working in another area will be charged the Rover Fee. The adjustment to the Rover fee needs to be done manually. If you believe that you have been charged the incorrect fee, please email us, and we will look into it. This only applies to Rovers who are also Leaders. Rovers who aren't Leaders are automatically charged the Rover fee.
Does Kangaree count for my camp out badge?
No. The Camp Out badge requires 2 consecutive nights of camping and must be completed with your Cub Pack.
When are the payments due?
A deposit of 50% of the total fee is required to be made at the time the application has been approved by the Group Leader.
The remaining 50% of the total fee is to be paid in full by no later than Monday, July 13th 2020.
When do applications close?
For Cub Scouts, applications close on the 30th of June 2020.
For all others, applications close on the 31st of August 2020.
No extension to these dates will be possible.
