Spookoree is an all-day event for Cub Scouts (kindergarten - 5th grade) and their families. Thrills and chills await Cub Scouts and their families. Scouts will work on advancements (required and elective adventures) and have fun, fun, fun! Spookree is a spooky version of a cuboree. The event activities include archery, water bottle rockets, and rank specific district led activities. Then families can enjoy the park with their pack by holding campsite sessions in their own specific outdoor location.
Spookoree, different from prior years, will be an outdoor day event in the morning and afternoon for all Cub ranks; Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos Scouts. This event will have fewer activities during the sessions than in previous years; there will be no physical fitness games or high-energy activities that could spread personal moisture droplets person-to-person. The event is being held inside Bear Creek Park.
