“CUB experience” - October 6th, 2018, 9 am - 3 pm

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 work on Program Adventures.
