One of the districts in my council is having its first Cub-A-Ree.
Here is a description of the stations:

            Station leader presents den with a list of 10 items to point
            out on the nature trail.  When they find an item, they point
            it out to the station leader. Max. time on trail -- 5 min.

            A range set up consisting of a 5-ft. diameter circle with 13

            present their skits.  Each den has 3 min. to put on their skit.
            Points awarded on originality, style, content & presentation.
   Scoring: Up to 10 pts. as determined by the judge.
            Gold Bead -  8 - 10 pts, Blue -  4 - 7 pts, Red -  0 - 3 pts

Note: Dens (2 or more boys).  Games are a DEN effort.  Stations are geared
      so that it takes TEAM effort.  All station activities taken from the
      Wolf, Bear, & Webelos Handbooks. (Their statement - our ideas could
      have other sources!)
      Although there is no limit to the number of boys in a den, it is
      recommended that dens be in the 8 boy range.  Larger dens could
      be split into two dens for the competition so all boys are able
      to participate in the contests.
