Hook, Arrow, and Shell

Hook, Arrow and Shell Cub Camporee registration is open!
May 12-14, 2023
CITTA Scout Reservation
HAS is taking it old school with a Pioneer theme this year! All the fun of HASs past (with hopefully clearer skies), but this year with a thematic twist. 
Now offered for just for Cubs, HAS will still focus on fishing, BBs, archery and Gaga, and will offer new games in the parade field, a Scoutcraft project, an opportunity to pan for “gold” and other goodies down by the waterfront, and a campfire program Saturday night! 
We’re outfitting the Cowboy Action Range as an exclusive target practice game area for Lions and younger siblings to play while the older Scouts participate in shooting sports, so they won’t feel left out. Jersey Shore Council does not permit Lions to participate in shooting sports. 
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. 

Hook Arrow and Shell [HAS] is a great spring event to bring your Pack to as a day or overnight camping trip! Camping is available Friday evening through Sunday morning, and activities are offered through the day on Saturday for your Cubs, including scheduled time slots for BBs, archery, fishing and Gaga, and a campfire program at the CITTA’s beautiful Council Ring. 

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), although shooting sports for siblings will be offered by the Range Masters on a space available basis.

We encourage early registration to secure shooting sports for Scouts. Packs are responsible for planning and preparing their own meals — Food is NOT provided, although breaks for meals are provided in the schedule.

PACKS SHOULD REGISTER AND PAY AT ONE TIME. If you are interested in attending with your Pack, please contact them to register for the event. Do not register as an individual Scout/family.


If you are NOT camping:

Youth (Cubs and siblings): $15 Adults: $5

If you ARE camping: There is a $30 Unit camping fee for the weekend.

Youth (Cubs and siblings): $18 Adults: $8

Please indicate number of SIBLINGS registered.
