The Klondike derby is a one-day competitive event at Camp Cachalot located in Myles Standish State Park, Carver, Massachusetts. The Klondike derby uses sledges and Klondike Gold Rush themes to compete in a multiple “Town” course and sledge race, pitting each team’s skills and teamwork against the clock.
The purposes of the derby are: first a grand outdoor winter adventure full of fun and surprises, and second, a way for scout’s to test their basic camping and survival skills. This event is for Scouts only. Adults were requested not to assist the Scouts in any way.
Marion Boy Scouts, Troop 32 had eight Scouts participate in the competition for the first time. All the Scouts had a great time, so we’re calling this event a success.
