The Klondike Derby is a challenging winter camping event in which patrols participate in competitive activity stations, prepare their meals outdoors, and camp in tents for one or two nights. The purpose of this event is to reinforce winter camping skills, scout skills, and the patrol method. Scouts will participate in one of two levels of competition, Novice or Advanced, based on their average rank scores as explained on the patrol registration form. Any average score over 4.0 will move a patrol into the Advanced level of competition. Advanced level challenges could be more difficult than the novice level. Only scouts properly prepared and dressed for cold weather activities should attend this event. The outdoor competition takes place on Saturday during the day, with patrols pulling a sled from station to station. Points will be awarded based on the patrol’s abilities and teamwork. The sled competition and overnight camping are limited to Boy Scouts only, due to the challenging nature of winter camping and the competitions. This event takes place rain or shine and will only be canceled if severe winter weather is being forecast for the area.
