What is CUBe?
An outdoor experience for all elementary aged Cub Scouts and their siblings. All scouts must
have an adult partner present to participate. Each Cub Scout Unit in
the Lone Star District is asked to host a station, where the scouts and
siblings will rotate through. Some of the activities include: Archery,
BB’s, Crafts, & Games. Siblings are not allowed to participate in
the Archery and BB’s Station for liability reasons. This is the first
chance of the new scouting year for the Cub Scouts to shoot Archery,
BB’s, and earn Belt Loops.
