Event Description

On 2/3/23, the Council cancelled this event due to forecast high winds (up to 40 MPH) that placed power and water to the camp at risk.

On 1/31/23, the Council changed this to a day event because of a cold snap that at the time was forecast to have the overnight temperature drop to -8°F Friday night. Troop 54 will still participate in the Klondike, and we will have a separate campout later in the month.

Troop 54 returns to J N Webster Scout Reservation to participate in a Klondike Derby hosted by the Connecticut Rivers Council. Our last visit to this camp was in 2021 for summer camp. Our site will be assigned upon arrival.

The Klondike takes place during the day on Saturday. A Klonikde Derby is a winter camporee (multiple troops) in which each patrol travels between stations (called events at this Klondike) with a sled. Each patrol will need to demonstrate leadership, scout skills, and teamwork. Prizes will be awarded to the top three patrols with the highest combined scores for all events. There will also be a sled race. Patrols can have 6-10 scouts. Events are designed so that all patrol members can participate and contribute.

For details on the Klondike event, see the Klondike Derby Events and the Schedule.

This trip is open to Scouts BSA members.



Dress warmly and bring any stuff in a day pack. Specific items to bring:
