Friday, January 25 -
Troop 54 will participate in the New Haven County Klondike Derby, which has the theme "Hunger Games 2019 - The Gathering of Districts" at Camp Sequassen, which we last visited in March 2017. This event is run by Sleeping Giant District in Connecticut Yankee Council event.
A Klondike Derby is a Boy Scout winter skill and camping event. Each patrol will pull a sled, loaded with personal and patrol equipment. The Scouts will journey across the snow (if there is any), stopping at different activity stations. At these stations, they will be tested on their Scouting knowledge, team work, and problem solving skills, competing against other patrols. One activity is a sled race. Depending on weather conditions, this can be on snow, ice (on a frozen lake) dirt or mud. Remember - a Scout is Prepared. We can put all terrain wheels on our sled if needed.

We will be camping in shelters at the Hillside site, which we will be sharing with Troop 604 of Hamden, CT.
