Hook, Arrow, and Shell 2024

Hook, Arrow and Shell Cub Camporee registration closes May 12!
May 17-19, 2024
Citta Scout Reservation

Register now for Hook, Arrow, Shell! With a theme your Cubs are sure to love, HAS focuses on fishing, BBs, archery and Gaga, craft projects, games and a campfire program on Saturday night! This year’s theme is Minecr…SCOUTCRAFT! We’re going to take all that digital adventure they love and plug it into the real world!

UPDATE- shooting sports is now full!

This event is being offered as a weekend family camping opportunity for units, but participants are welcome to make it a Saturday day trip instead. All program activities will be held on Saturday. The event is held rain or shine, so come prepared for whatever Spring-time has to offer! HAS is a nice trip for newer pack parents as most of the sites are easily accessible, and there are flushable toilets if needed. Scout siblings are welcome (2 and under free).

Scouts in their Lion year (including those who may have just ranked up to Tiger) are not permitted to participate in shooting sports, but we will be providing alternate activities for Lions and younger siblings to play while the older Scouts shoot, so they won’t feel left out.

We encourage early registration to secure spots in shooting sports—we will accommodate shooting sports on a first registered, first reserved basis. Packs are responsible for planning and preparing their own meals — Food is NOT provided, although breaks for meals are provided in the schedule.

We will have bait and some fishing rods available for use, but if Scouts have their own, please bring them to ensure we have enough.

If you are interested in attending with your Pack, please contact them to register for the event. Do not register as a solo Scout/family. A Pack leader should register and pay for all participants.

Registration DEADLINE is May 12th. We will not accept late registrations.


NOT camping:

Youth (Cubs and siblings): $15

Adults: $5

Camping: There is a $30 Unit camping fee for the weekend (one fee per Pack). TENTS WILL *NOT* BE PROVIDED FOR ON-SITE CAMPING THIS YEAR.

Youth (Cubs and siblings): $18

Adults: $8

Please indicate number of LIONS and/or younger siblings registered, so we have accurate numbers for planning shooting sports.
