FAQ

Q: What is a Zomb-O-Ree?
A: Pacific Skyline Council’s Zomb-O-Ree 2013 is back and better than ever! Zomb-O-Ree is a camporee-styled event happening at Cutter Scout Reservation on May 3-5, 2013 - all of the event’s activities will highlight Scouting skills that you would use to survive a Zombie Apocalypse, in addition to a bunch of other cool stuff, like our Zipline!

Q: Where is Zomb-O-Ree being held?
A: Cutter Scout Reservation is the perfect spot for an event like this! Relatively isolated, Cutter would naturally be one of the last safe havens in our area from an army of hungry, reanimated corpses. One way in, one way out; sufficiently stocked with food and a supply of fresh water, not to mention plenty of ammunition! Is there a place that you’d rather be?

Q: I better get to Cutter as soon as possible! When can I get there?
A: Event check-in starts on Friday, May 3 @ 1730 hrs and ends at 2100 hrs (5:30 pm -9:00 pm for civilians). Once you’ve been cleared by our Medical Staff – we need to make sure that no one in your contingent has been infected with the Zombie Contagion – then you may proceed to
the Harkson Lodge for final processing.

Q: What are some of the activities that I can participate in?
A: Activities are divided into three main areas:
  • . Invasion Training Stations: Practice your first aid, knots & lashings, fire building and a host of other skills on the morning of April 28.
  • Zombie Defense Centers: Look SHARP! Your favorite rifle or shotgun may be your last hope against a pending Zombie attack. Or, you might want to use a bow instead – a silvertipped arrow flying swift, silent and sure might be just as effective!
  • Team Response and Execution: There is safety in numbers! For these events, teamwork will be your only hope for survival!
A detailed list of the activity stations is contained in the Zomb-O-Ree Leaders’ Guide (available after March 15).

Q: Will I need my uniform to identify me as a non-Zombie?
A: No! This isn’t your father’s Zomb-O-Ree! Come in a white t-shirt and your “grubbies.”  Zombies are known for not being able to maintain their cellular integrity for very long – we wouldn’t want your “Court of Honor best” to get stained by Zombie drool.

Q: Do I need to bring any special equipment?
A: You can never go wrong with your 10 Essentials! There is an equipment checklist in the Zomb-O-Ree Leaders Guide (available after March 15). Depending on whether your unit is cooking its own grub (for fear of Zombie contamination), you may or may not need cooking equipment and provisions. Talk to your Scoutmaster to be sure!

Q: This sounds great! How much does it cost?
A: Zomb-O-Ree 2013 FOOD OPTION costs $45.00/Scout or Scout Leader and includes all meals (Friday dinner to Sunday lunch) and a commemorative event patch. If your unit wishes to cook its own food, then there is a LIMITED FOOD OPTION available that costs $35.00/Scout
or Scout Leader (includes SATURDAY MRE only). A late fee of $10.00 will be charged for all registrations after April 26.

Q: Just a patch?! You couldn’t do better than that?
A: A Special Zomb-O-Ree t-shirt is available for purchase at www.preordershirt.com and is customizable with your Unit # and location at no extra charge. Order them now and you’ll be able to wear the coolest Scouting T at summer camp!  (Due to the shipping capabilities of our supplier, please order shirts as a unit, not as individual participants.)

Q: I’m an Adult Scouter and don’t want to miss the fun. Can I come too?
A: Of course! Scouters can share the risk with their units – two deep leadership is required. Scouters can also participate as Dedicated Staff at a special registration fee of $25.00/Scouter.  This fee includes all meals (Friday dinner to Sunday lunch), a commemorative patch, and a special edition Staff t-shirt!

Q: Can Cub Scouts attend?
A: Webelos Scouts may attend as embedded members of a troop, at their leaders’ and parents’ discretion.

Q: I am totally excited! How do I register?
A: That’s the easy part! You can register online (by unit) at http://www.pacsky.kintera.org/zomboree If your troop is not attending, individual scouts can register as “Provisional Scouts” (FOOD Option Only) and will be grouped into a patrol.

Q: I have a question that’s not on this list. What do I do now?
