Webelos 1&2 are invited to join Troop #179 at the GSC Klondike Derby on January 28th!
Depending on the number of confirmations, the Webelos will either embed with some of the Troop Patrols and accompany them for a couple of stations, or they will do a small subset of events on their own. It’s a ton of fun!
Any Webelo that attends must have a parent follow full-time. The registration is $15 per boy, and they will receive a special Klondike 2017 patch as well as a knit participant hat.
Did we mention, it’s a ton of fun? 🙂
The full events list is not shared until the day of the event, but competing units can encompass any number of Scoutcraft skills, with a focus on teamwork:
- Camp Cooking
- Camp Health
- Camp Preparation
- Edible Wild Plants
