Program Highlights:

  • Similar the original Iditarod Race - each Troop Team will attempt to maneuver through a course on a mission to get medical supplies to remote campers who need help.  
  • Each Troop should submit a sled crew to represent the Troop. No limit on size.
  • As they go each team will encounter notional hazards that cause one team member to be injured
  • As they race, their burden will be greater and they will have to make decisions about how to care for and transport their patients along the way.  
  • One station will have fake blood for realism – that station leader will chose a Scout to be the head injury victim. 
  • We are planning to have this be a race against time with time penalties for not treating patients correctly. 
  • Scouts will need to bring their own sled / transport vehicle capable of traversing uneven terrain with at least one person and a small box with precious cargo on board. The precious cargo is a treat for them later.
  • The benefit of the weekend will be for Scouts to demonstrate basic Scout skills required for advancement such as 1st Class Requirements 7a and 7b, demonstrate physical fitness and have fun!
