The Cuboree Fund was created after the 1995 Cuboree, held on Bell Island. The organizing committee led by Camp Chief Charles Cook asked the North East Avalon Regional Council to set aside and invest the $5,000 surplus from the Cuboree. The Fund’s original object was to provide Cub Scouts needing financial to attend Cuborees. The Cuboree Fund now supports Cub Scouts who require financial assistance to attend Provincial Jamborees.
