2014 Klondike Derby
"Strike 4" - February 14-16, 2014
The fourth annual Klondike Derby for Venturing will be held February 14-16, 2014 at Latimer High Adventure Reservation. This is a competitive event and there are rules governing the designs of sleds and the equipment required of each team. Deadline for registration is January 31st, 2014.
Just before the turn of the century, gold prospectors traveled the sub-zero reaches of Alaska by dogs and sleds. They camped out in all kinds of winter weather, and therefore needed adequate survival skills, which they learned from native Eskimos. Scouting has incorporated this theme in the Klondike Derby. The point of the Klondike Derby is to make Venturers and Sea Scouts use their heads, to put their Scouting skills to work in the field, to demonstrate teamwork and Scout spirit, and to have fun in the outdoors in the winter.
Don’t miss the fun and adventure of the Klondike Derby.
