Mud Cubs is a great time for everyone. Every August, all Cub Scouts and their families are invited to Cub World at Scouters' Mountain to enjoy a day of just being a kid by getting muddy on our exclusive obstacle course. Lunch is included for all participants who pre-register (for an additional fee). This is a fun-filled day where you have the chance to get as dirty and muddy as possible while completing a specially designed course.
SAVE THE DATE: AUGUST 24, 2013
"A Scout is Clean but not afraid to get dirty!"-Mike Rowe, Dirty Jobs & Eagle Scout
Families are encouraged to participate with their Cub Scouts. Siblings and parents may sign up to participate (4 and under are free). Each obstacle will present a new challenge to the participant. You will have to crawl over and through the mud, some obstacles will require you to dig in the mud, and others will have you playing in it. If you are done in the mud and need to clean off, stay around and play on the slip 'n' slide, walk through the Cub Car Wash, or use the designated shower areas to hose off.
Event will include:
Pit of Despair The Gauntlet
Tar Pits 2-B Dirty Intertube Dive
Mud Hurdles Super Soaker Range
Water Rockets Slingshot Water Balloons
Grunge Crawl Cub Car Wash
100 ft. Slip 'n' Slide

It is also suggested to bring an extra set of clothes, an old towel, and a plastic bag for the muddy clothes. The trading post will also be open; souvenir shirts and other goodies will be available for purchase.

Registration for August 2013
Registration will be set up in heats every hour with groups of 25 participants every 10 minutes (six groups per hour). The first group will begin at 10:00am, the second at 10:10am, and so on. You must check in at least 30 minutes prior to your time slot. There will be non-muddy activities to do on the shooting ranges while you wait for your heat. Each heat is assigned a color and a name (see registration page). Note: Please only sign up for one time slot. All participants will get to take part in the full course. The heats are set up to lessen the back log at some particular stations.
Online registration is now closed, and the morning slots are full. Walk ins will be welcomed on Saturday.
Mud Cubs is located at Cub World on Scouters' Mountain (11300 SE 147th Ave, Happy Valley, OR). Parking is limited, so plan to carpool. A shuttle will be available from the lower parking lots (COPE course and Camp Discovery) to Cub World, or you may walk up the hill.
