What is a Klondike Derby? - 2020 Information and Details

Many years ago, men raced across the Canadian frozen wilderness to an area called the Klondike by means of dogs and sleds in search of gold. Scouting has taken this idea and came up with the idea of the Klondike Derby as an activity for Scouts.

This year’s theme for the Ramapo Valley District (RVD) Klondike Derby is the Roman Gladiator!!

The Roman Gladiator Klondike will be a day packed with activities that mimic what these explorers might have encountered in the Klondike Gold Rush. Some of the activities test life-or-death skills such as first aid and building a fire, and some are just fun like spinning a game wheel at an arcade.

Cost per Sled - $55 per sled if registered and paid by 1/6/2020. $70 for late registration.

Each sled must have 4-8 Scouts per sled. Register on the Ramapo Valley District website.

If you have 1-3 Scouts that want to participate, we will TRY to match your Scouts up with other Units who are under the 8 Scout per sled limit (if available). If your Unit has a sled with room for one or more additional Scouts please note that at registration!!
