To create a fun environment for scouts to demonstrate teamwork, skills, and the ability to find another way to enjoy extreme conditions, safely and enthusiastically.  Adventures and activities are focused on an all-day sled adventure between activities with a “gold-rush” days flavor. Each adventure has been selected to introduce or educate each and every scout in Scout craft skills pertaining to cooking, pioneering, first aid, compass, and teamwork, as well as basic survival techniques and methods. By combining the winter camping experience with the events, the Klondike provides an opportunity for Scouts to experience new challenges while having lots of fun. All troops/crews are encouraged to participate in this great adventure!

Scouters, wandering adults, “just drivers”, and officious-looking council staff will be put to work.  If you have a preference or would like to command an event, call the committee!  Like last year, the games and program areas will be staffed with experienced Youth and Adults. Experienced Youth not participating in a patrol are encouraged to help staff events and program areas. All attending adults should plan on volunteering to assist. Volunteers should meet at the Klondike Headquarters at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday and ask how they can help.
