Duwamish Klondike 2022

“There are strange things done in the midnight sun, by the men who moil for gold, The Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold”…

…these words were penned by the fabled poet and writer, Robert Service, as he watched the great Klondike Gold rush going on around him. It was an amazing time in our country with men and women pushing themselves to unbelievable limits in the hopes of striking it rich!

And annually around the country, the BSA puts on its own version of the Klondike Challenge to put its members to the test! Webelos, Scout BSA Troops, Venturing Crews – time to start dusting off your sled or build a new one because Klondike will soon be upon us. Camp Koinonia will once again host our great Klondike. Look for information posted on the District website or contact Dale Rae at Dale@dfrae.com.

Date: March 4 – 6, 2022 
Start Time: Friday 
End Time: Sunday
Location: Camp Koinonia, 850 Camp Koinonia Lane, Cle Elum, WA

COVID Protocols

For Klondike, we will generally be following the Council summer camp policies with adjustments that they have made for Winter Camps.

  • The Winter Camp COVID-19 Playbook (Playbook) can be found here
  • When outside, masks are no longer required
  • Klondike will be requiring a COVID Activity Waiver for each attendee, youth and adult.  Waiver can be found here:
  • As stated in the Playbook, if not vaccinated, must provide a negative test within 72 hours of arriving at Klondike.  Home COVID tests are OK.  Attendees (youth and adults) should bring that test/documentation with them when arriving at camp.  Must be within last 72 hours.  A scout is trustworthy.
  • Council is still recommending we have everyone stay in the vehicle and check temperatures upon arrival.  If anyone has a fever, the whole car goes home.
  • If you are staying in a cabin, there is no designation in cabins for vaccinated or non-vaccinated.  Everyone will be either vaccinated or have a negative test.  If cabin beds are next to each other, we ask that you sleep head to toe and not head to head.

Registration is open for 2022 Lake Shores-Duwamish Klondike at Camp Koinonia!

There are three categories for registration below. 

    1. Everyone need to register to attend Klondike, whether you are coming up for the day or the weekend.
    2. Spending the night? (or two!)  Be it in a tent or limited cabin space.
    3. Would you like a camp dining hall meal instead of cooking one of your own?  Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast or Saturday dinner?  For those that “winter over” on Saturday night, we still have the free all-you-can-eat flapjack breakfast on Sunday morning!
