A day trip or a weekend camp, Cub-O is the most poplar orienteering event in North America! A FUN day of hiking and friendly competition for Cub Scouts, parents, and Leaders! The Orienteering Committee extends its thanks and appreciation to the outstanding Packs, Troops, Scouts, and Scouters who help make Cub-O another great event!

The Orienteering Committee thanks the dozens of volunteers and Scouts who helped make Cub-O so much fun this year!! Join us for the next Cub-O! Cub-O is a fun Orienteering competition for Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos held each year right after the holiday break. Lunch is included.

Each team of 3-6 Cubs gets a Cub-O map half an hour before the race starts. Your goal is to hike in the woods and find as many of the 40 orange and white orienteering flags as you can. Plan your strategy to score the maximum point total possible in 2 hours!  Map training sessions for Cub Scouts and parents are held all morning.

Lunch will be served in the dining hall. Meal times are assigned to minimize the length of serving lines. Units may choose to do Pack Family Camping on Friday and/or Saturday night. Scores will be available by Saturday night. After the event, each team’s competition race maps will be available to pick up at the District Roundtable meetings in January or February. This is a rain or shine event: extreme inclement weather (ice or snow) may cause a one week postponement. Weather announcements will be made ON THIS WEBSITE.

Volunteers Needed for map scoring on Saturday afternoon and early evening at the next Cub-O. The final scores will be posted on Saturday night.

Each team’s competition maps and scores will be available as well. The Orienteering Committee will check and score each map 3 – 4 times to make sure they are scored correctly.

CAMPFIRES: campfires are allowed unless the county issues a fire ban. Fires must be built only in existing fire rings, must be attended at all times, and must be completely extinguished before the adults leave the campsite or go to bed. There is no time limit on campfires as long as they are attended.

In January 2017 Channel 5 News did a special on Cub Scouts camping at SR2 in the sub-freezing temperatures Friday night.  Don’t forget to get Polar Bear Awards if you camped. Channel 5 News story: “Hundreds of Cub Scouts Brave Below-Freezing Weather.
