Event Details

Klondike Derby 2020

Winter Outdoor Skills Competition! Saturday, February 15, 2020

This is a traditional Scouting Winter Camping and Outdoor Skills competition. Each patrol/crew must build and bring a wheeled Klondike sled or a wheeled miniature Conestoga or Prairie Schooner Wagon with their trademark canvas bonnets!

Participants can serve as the draft animal of their choice: dogs, horses, oxen, or mules - depending on the vehicle they bring! Patrols/teams will load the wagons/sleds with their personal and patrol equipment and pull them through the competition course using a map and compass to find each station. Competition Stations will be named after famous Gold Rush towns. Patrols/teams will receive "gold" nuggets for their score at each station. Some events will be competitive, some will be instructional. Each station will time and test patrols on their team work, winter camping skills, Scouting knowledge and their problem solving ability.
