2023 Northern Star Scouting
Klondike Series Overview
Join your fellow troops and crews from across Northern Star Scouting for a weekend of competition, Scout skills, and fellowship during our four Klondike Derbies. The Klondike events are an excellent opportunity for your unit to demonstrate proficiency in Scout skills and teamwork. Each Klondike event is open to all Northern Star Scouts BSA troops or Venture crews regardless of district affiliation.
The 2023 Klondike Derby events will be held on two different weekends at two different Northern Star Scouting camps in the winter of 2023. Join us January 28th at Stearns Scout Camp, or February 18th and 19th at Fred C. Andersen Scout Camp.
