HT Klondike Derby
2023 Klondike Derby Hosted by the Historic Triangle District
This event is open to all Scouts BSA Troops, Venture Crews, Ships, Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts. Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts may form their own patrol of 6-8Scouts or attach to a Troop.
In a Klondike Derby, Scout patrols act as huskies using a pull rope attached to the front of specially-designed homemade sleds around a field course marked by stations named for towns or cities, such as Yukon, Nome, Dawson or Fairbanks. At each town, the Scouts tackle exercises in problem-solving, as well as contests and other activities in which the patrols or teams earn "gold nuggets" and credits towards top three prizes. Participants should dress in period costume which will enhance the experience.
Helpful hint: Think late 1800’s!
