A Cub Scout MinuteCub Muster centers on colonial life, Minutemen, patriotism, fun and the American Revolution.  There are numerous activities, songs, music and discovery making this an event suitable for the entire Cub Scout family.  The MinuteCub Muster anticipates over 2,000 Cub Scouts, 100 Boy Scout assistants and 500 BSA Leaders from across New England.  Reservations are secured by payment and should be made early as this event is expected to sell out.

The registration price is $45 per Minutecub which includes a patch, T-shirt and access to all the events.   There is no fee for leaders or camp followers.  The Muster Store will offer T-shirts for $10 each, patches for $5.00 each, muskets for $20.00 each and tricorn hats for $15 each.  This is a family event.  Saturday evening camping is available at Nobscot Scout Reservation in Sudbury and Camp Resolute in Bolton.
