Join us at the Alpine District Klondike Derby. Scouts use troop assembled sleds for moving between patrol competitions. This is an overnight snow camp - proper gear and clothing are essential. Preparation will be discussed at the Monday prior to Klondike.
The Klondike Derby is a one-day winter event with a Friday night campout that brings together Scouts from the Alpine and Cascade Districts. Adventures and activities are focused around an all-day sled adventure between activities with a "gold-rush" days’ flavor. Each adventure has been selected to introduce or educate each and every scout in Scout craft skills pertaining to cooking, pioneering, first aid, compass, and teamwork, as well as basic survival techniques and methods. By combining the winter camping experience with the Scoutcraft competitions, the Klondike provides an opportunity for Scouts to experience new challenges while having lots of fun. Returning highlights from prior years: The Chili Cook-Off!
