2024 Klondike Derby Recap


On February 3rd, 4 patrols of Scouts attended the Klondike Derby in the area around the parking lot across from Regatta Playground. In 14 towns, Scouts utilized skills such as tomahawk throwing, pioneering, orienteering, patrol teamwork, Kim's Game, and fire-building. Two patrols did exceptionally well, with Scorpion Patrol winning 2nd overall, and the Senior Patrol winning Best in Town for First Aid. The adults also had a wonderful time, leading the First Aid town and making delicious chili in a Boy Scouts Dutch oven. Overall, it was a great weekend for all Scouts who learned and practiced various skills on their journey to Eagle Scout.
