The Greatest Show on EarthIndian Nations Council
Are you and your Cub Scout pack ready to experience the most fun you've ever had?? Then Cub World at the John Zink Scout Ranch is t he place you and your pack should be.
CUB WORLD IS a family program, with Cub Scouts and their families participating in an overnight experience, with the selected theme area as the focus for the program. Although there is a one-day program for packs that do not wish to stay overnight, the camping experience is encouraged to get the most out of the program. The campsites are designated for Cub Scout family camping only. There are even flush toilets!
Cub World has a comprehensive program developed for the theme area you choose. The package includes three complete den meeting programs and a pack program for the four weeks leading up to the weekend. These programs are directly related to the theme area the pack has reserved.
In addition, the program for the weekend will be outlined with a complete schedule to follow and activities to conduct, including a campfire and chapel program. An Orientation Guide describing how to plan the weekend and Theme Program Guides for each area are available at the Scout Service Center. These guides are essential to the success of your pack's program. It's all there for you; all your pack has to do is carry out the program. The program is designed to be run by the pack leaders. There won't be any staff on hand, except fore the folks who run the General Store at Turkey Creek Village.
Reservations And Applications
Packs need to make reservations at least 60 days in advance. The pack must submit a completed Cub World Reservation Application by the deadline date or the reservation will be canceled. Reservations are accepted on a first come basis for every weekend from March through October.

Land Ship Program
Designed around a nautical theme, using a large land-locked replica of an ocean going ship as the centerpiece of the area. The program lends itself to pirate, viking, treasure island, and riverboat concepts. Part of the Land Ship program is the Learning Trail, with a series of stations where Cub Scouts and their families will take part in activities that will allow them to learn valuable lessons about life through experience and to understand the values involved with being morally straight.
Native American Nature Program
Focuses on American Indians and their relationship with the environment. An Indian Kiva is the focal point for this program area. The Kiva is large enough to accommodate an entire pack for program features. Part of the program is a Nature Trail, actually a series of trails with stations along the way for Cub Scouts and their families to learn about the environment of the area and as a result be more mentally awake.
Turkey Creek Village
A replica of an old western town complete with a Sheriff's office, general store, blacksmith building and hotel. In addition, a large fort sits just across from the village. Part of the program is a Fitness Trail, with a number of stations for Cub Scouts and their families to participate in activities designed to help them keep physically fit.
