  • Sleeping Pad
  • Sheet to cover mattress or floor
  • Warm footwear
  • Warm clothes in layers. We will be outside all day. Avoid things made of cotton
  • Extra pair of gloves and socks. There is a good chance that clothes will get wet during the day.
  • Mess and chow kit
  • Scout Book
  • Cards, board games
  • Scouts are usually required to bring a can of chili or some food to dump into the collective Saturday lunch stew--requirements will be communicated via email.
  • Signed Camp Wokanda waiver form. Every scout and parent attending needs to fill one out. Download Link: Camp Wokanda Waiver
Event Description: In 1896, the Klondike Gold Rush began. Thousands of miners flocked to the Yukon to seek their fortune. Those who worked hard and were prepared were rewarded with gold, adventure, and plenty of stories to share. Will your troop or crew be prepared to take home the gold?
Klondike Derby Challenges include Sled making (Troops bring their own supplies), Shelter Building, Flagpole and rope setup, Snowball Shooter, Snowblind Maze, Fishing, Campfire stories, Ice Rescue, Fire Building, Gorge Crossing team event and the Great Sled Races.
Like the Klondike Gold Rush commemorated by this event, this will challenge your skills, your endurance, and your will to survive in an extreme environment. Be prepared! Even your adult leaders will be challenged! It will take teamwork, determination, and maybe even a little luck to win gold and glory for your unit.
