OA Fishing Derby
No charge! Bring your poles and bait! Let’s go Fishing!
Each paying Cub Scout and paying Cub Scout leader will get one free popcorn and one free sno-cone during this time. If your cubs get finish with their snack and there is time before your next activity there will be a noodle baseball set up along with bubbles to keep your boys busy until it’s your time at the next station.
Concessions for Sale
Popcorn-$1 and Sno-cones-$1 will be for sale during the camporee. Also bags of cotton candy will be for sale for $2 a bag. All money collected will go to the Hammerstone Building Fund and to contingency in the Cub-O-Ree Budget if the projected amount of cubs does not show up.
Tie on Cub Scout Friendship
Each pack forms a circle. Each scout has the end of two ropes. The object is for each scout to tie the ropes using the square knot to form a circle in the least amount of time. Time will be stopped and the knots checked for correctness. If a knot is not correct, then time will resume while the following cubs help their fellow scout and friend to tie the knot correctly. Time will stop and checked again until the friendship ring is correct.
Let’s go camping
This will be a relay type race. There will be a tent, chair, etc. Each pack will line up and three boys will go down and set up the tent. They will run back and tag the next boy. He will run down and lay out the sleeping bag in the tent. The 5th scout will set up a chair beside the tent. Then so on until the campsite is complete. Which ever pack crosses the finish line first and camp is set up right in the least amount of time will be the winner. If there are more cubs than tasks that are needed to be complete then each boy needs to run down sit in the chair and run back.
Team work Tarp
Scouts will be given a tarp, stakes, and hammer. Each pack or den will have to use team work to lay out the tarp on the ground within a painted area the size of the tarp. Scouts will need to hold it tight on all four sides while the scouts take turns staking down the four corners. The winner will be the one who has the tarp within the area and staked down in the least amount of time.
What is the sign?
Each pack will be given a copy of the sign language alphabet. Together they will use this to decode a message. The packs will be judged on how long it takes them to decode the message.
Round them Up
There will be cans placed at different distances. Each pack will get 20 throws. Points will be given to each can. Each scout will take a rope with a bean bag attached at the end and will have to throw it and try to get it into the can of their choice. The pack with the most points in 20 throws wins.
Not an Obstacle!
Each scout will walk the plank, go through the tunnel, throw a ball in a bucket, run through hula hoops laid on the ground, slide down a slide into a pool of balls, jump over the ropes, and weave through the cones back to the finish line. This event will be judged on scout spirit.
Cracker Barrel a time line will be handed out after we know how many cubs will be participating on Saturday. Each pack should provide at least one volunteer to help with the games. A signup sheet will be at the available during Cracker Barrel.
Capture the Cow!
Milkshake is loose at Hammerstone!!! Find Milkshake and fast. On Saturday morning he will be hanging out. If you find him your job is to put him in a safe place in either your campsite where he can be seen or at any cub area where he can be seen. If another pack spots him they can capture him. Let’s see how many packs can capture Milkshake before Sunday service. Have fun and don’t forget about scout spirit.
We are going to have a huge inflatable double slide, an inflatable bounce house, and an inflatable maze!!!! What better exercise and fun for cubs. Each pack will be able to spend one hour on the inflatable's. Before any scout or sibling can get on them, parents are required to sign a wavier. The rules are simple, no shoes, no food or drinks, no flips on any of them, no pushing or horseplay. Remind your boys, SAFETY IS A MUST!
Friends among us.
Have you ever thought how can we bring our packs together? We have and we would like to have a friendship hour. We would like to have all the packs to bring their camping chairs, marshmallows, and roasting sticks up to the campfire pit by the museum. There all of our boys can spend time together. If you don’t want to come for an hour or so, just drop by for a few minutes. It never seems that we have time to talk among the packs. We hope that maybe some of our cubs will make new friends at the campfire. This is how camporee’s should be, bringing our packs and troops together for fellowship and friendship.
