A Junior and Senior Event

This is Junior and Senior Scout event. A Junior Scout is a Scout from Scout rank to 1st Class rank, while a Senior Scout is one who is from 1st Class rank to Eagle rank.   Each patrol will be given a listing of GPS coordinates and will take their sled to each mine, and the mine mgr. of each of those mines will test your Scouting skills. The patrol will show their leadership by completing each station in a timely fashion. Yes, each station will be timed.

Your job as a loyal Scout is to do your best as you are tested in current life knowledge and skills as well as those  skills that would be found in the Boy Scout handbook.  You will be awarded points on your skill set. Scout spirit will also be graded which will help you.  You are to follow the list of needed materials to carry on your Klondike sled.  Your Scouts will be judged on how they are dressed for weather! The patrol may be penalized for lack of preparation.  It is important that each troop prepare for this event by going over cold weather camping techniques ahead of time.

A Saturday dinner will be provided in our dining hall followed by a Scouts Own service, our award ceremony, and a Gong Show style talent contest.

 

Cost will be $18.00 per person! (WEBELOS are $10.00)
