The Klondike Derby is an annual event where multiple Scout troops compete in a sled race through the woods, completing various tasks along the way, much like a Projectoree or Camporee. Scout teams compete and earn Gold Nuggets for each successfully completed task along the race. The team that earns the most Gold Nuggets in the quickest time wins!
Sleds are built by the Scouts and use rails for snow or can be modified with wheels on the day of the event. The sleds are then loaded with gear and pulled and pushed through the course to each “town” (activity station) where they try and complete a task as quickly as they can.
