The Camp Mahonegon Klondike will be held on January 26-28, 2018. Check-in will begin on Friday evening at 7:00 pm at the Dining Hall. The cost of the Klondike is $12.00 (which includes a patch and Lunch — lunch is a graded station). This is a Boy Scout Winter Skills and Camping event (hopefully we will have snow). This Klondike will be run using an open-schedule format (except for lunch). Please review the LEADER’S GUIDE for further information.


If your patrol camps in a tent on Friday night, they will receive 10 points to be added to their total score for the competition.


One of the most important parts of the Klondike Derby is to BE PREPARED to stay warm and dry. It is recommended to change into a dry pair of clothing that you could roll up in your sleeping bag before you go to sleep. Each scout must know what to wear as the weather at Camp Mahonegon can change very quickly. Dress in layers for the daytime activities so that you avoid sweating or getting too cold. Boots are required to keep your feet warm and dry.

What is a Klondike Derby?
It’s a Boy Scout Winter Skill and Camping event, held in January in the snow (hopefully). Typically, it involves an overnight campout and multiple Camporee type competitions, where Boy Scout Troops and Patrols compete against each other. Boys are divided into Patrols and each Patrol uses a Dog Type sled that uses Scout power to pull it instead of dogs. The Scouts pull the sleds that are loaded with their personal and patrol equipment. The Scouts journey through woods and fields, up and down the hills and stop at different activity stations where they are tested on different Scout skills. When they arrive at these stations they are tested on their Scouting knowledge, team work and problem solving skills.

One of the most important parts of a Klondike Derby is to keep warm and dry. Each Scout must know what to wear. Winter weather is very changeable, requiring preparedness for almost any condition. Your best protection is your common sense. Dress in layers. Avoid working up a sweat, and keep yourself comfortable by removing or adding layers of clothing.

If your troop camps in TENTS Friday night they will receive an extra 20 points on their score sheet at the end of the activities.

Will be provided.

There will be no wheels allowed on the sled.
