Klondike Derby

In a Klondike Derby, Scout patrols acting as huskies pull specially designed homemade sleds around a field course marked by stations. At each station the Scouts tackle exercises in problem-solving, as well as contests and other activities with information that can be found in your scout book.

Each patrol or "dog team" (so-called because Scouts act as huskies) follows a course in numerical order as outlined on a map given to the unit leader at registration. The map guides the teams around a circuit of the stations.

As they arrive at each station, the patrols should demonstrate their Scout spirit by giving their patrol yell. They'll encounter a practical problem involving basic Scouting skills.
