What is Klondike Winter Camp'
The Klondike Winter Camp is held December 27-30 annually at Camp Barstow. This Winter Camp is held just after the Christmas holidays. These include many of the merit badges required for Eagle. A volunteer camp staff provides program help, guidance, and supervision in the area of Scout-craft, Nature, Field Sports, and Citizenship as well as many other specialty Merit Badges. Scouts also benefit by association with Scouts from other troops, making new friends, learning new methods, sharing ideas, and enjoying the fellowship of camp-wide campfires, games and competition.

Any individual Scout whose Troop is unable to attend Winter Camp should sign-up as a maverick camper. Maverick campers should contact the Camp Director before signing-up and coming to camp to be assigned to a Troop. The Maverick program requires that a youth is a registered Scout and must have their parent's and Scoutmaster's approval.
