Event Description:

This year Troop 163 hosting so we will have the opportunity to help run the stations and overall event. We'll be staying in the Cabin accross from the dining lodge. This is a great event for new and experienced Scouts alike, as the experience is different every time.

We will meet at the church on Friday evening and drive out to Camp Wokanda. After getting gear unloaded, etc. we'll have some prep for the morning's events then probably have a Cracker Barrel or other light snack. Saturday we'll have breakfast, run the event, then have dinner. Later in the evening will be free time for games, etc. On Sunday, we'll have a quick breakfast, finish packing-up, and head back to the church, planning to be back by around 11AM (weather and other circumstances permitting).

Don't worry about winter weather -- if you dress warmly (see packing list), this will be one of the most fun events of the year. If it is not possible to attend the whole weekend, you could come out for just Saturday. We need at least 12 adults, including the two designated Adult Leaders (but more would be helpful) and 20 Scouts to be able to run our share of the stations, etc. Don't miss this opportunity to help make the 2020 Klondike the best ever.... and enjoy the best event of the year!
