Klondike – Mountain Territory – Camp Edward
February 10 - February 12$8.5
Units attending will receive participation ribbons and all scouts attending will receive a cool 2023 Klondike patch! Webelos may either camp with a troop, as a dens/packs, or attend just for the Derby Saturday morning at their option.
The Klondike Derby originates from the Klondike gold rush era, where miners tested their skills against the elements for precious nuggets of gold. Some struck it rich and, some not so rich. Likewise, Patrols and Dens will be awarded gold nuggets by competing against the clock and each other in a series of games based on scouting skills. Each patrol’s “mining” success will be based on how well they follow instructions, apply their scout skills, work as a patrol in a team fashion and show off their scout spirit. Their efforts will be rewarded with “gold nuggets”.
This year’s Klondike will be organized in three general events. First is the Klondike Derby Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon will be troop skills in your campsites. Sunday morning will be 2 hours of conservation service hours. All scouts to have or earn their whittling chip and participate in the conservation service hours will earn their Paul Bunyan Award.
