February Campout - Old Dominion District Klondike Derby, February 4-6, 2022

  • Description - The Old Dominion District’s Klondike Derby is the best-attended, most-fun winter camporee in the region! In 2019, we had nearly 40 stations and more than 700 participants from every council service area – and two from out of council! Scouts meet every winter for a day-long, patrol-level competition of scout skills, individual knowledge, teamwork, and ingenuity.

Now, in 2022, the object is simple: patrols earn gold for Scout Skills, Scout Spirit, and Patrol Cooperation while having fun in the wintery cold. Patrols use a map and station list to determine which competitions they want to try. Each patrol plans its route, selects the stations it will attempt, and budgets its time to maximize its winnings.

New to the Klondike? Don’t have a sled? Don’t worry! Sleds are optional. When we have snow, sleds help with speed and add to the fun. But sleds are not required. Stations that require sleds will rent one to your patrols for a small amount of gold.
