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.

All registered Boy Scouts, registered leaders, and any person who has taken the required training. Several troops may pool their resources in order to provide an adequate number of Scouts and adult leaders to form a unit. 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 coming to camp to be assigned to a Troop.
Maverick Camp: Maverick camp is available to any individual Scout those troop cannot attend Winter Camp. Troops in attendance are asked to "adopt" these Scouts, so they can experience Winter Camp. The Maverick camper will join in with the host troop during the time he is at camp. The Maverick program requires that a boy is a registered Scout, and he must have his parent's and his Scoutmaster's approval.
