What is the Klondike Derby

  • The Klondike Derby is a Scouting competition requiring teams of 6 to 8 Cubs/Guides or Scouts/Pathfinders to pull a Klondike-type sleigh over a course of approximately 2.5 km through the woods at Camp Amisk
  • Teams follow a map and visit ten Klondike "towns" where the "town mayor" assigns the team a particular task or activity
  • Points (nuggets) are awarded to the team based on how well it performs the task, the speed and the demonstrated teamwork
  • The teams' elapsed times on the course are also tracked and form part of the overall scoring
  • The towns must be visited in correct order
  • The town names and instructions for the tasks are written based on the Klondike gold rush theme
