Sussex Scouts Get Outside for Klondike Fun

The Sussex District Klondike was held at Camp Somers at Mount Allamuchy Scout Reservation on January 30.  Thirteen troops with over 200 Scouts, Webelos and adult leaders participated in the event.

Scout troops were assigned to campsites and the “mayors” rotated to the sites to maintain cohort integrity under current COVID-19 restrictions. Rather than focus on the normal “competition” associated with the traditional Klondike, units performed the various tasks to the best of their ability in their sites.

Fortunately, the weather cooperated, and all units had a great opportunity to get outside, to exhibit their Scouting skills, and to have some fun.

The Klondike was chaired by Bob Reidmiller and Jeff Winkler, and was supported by many other volunteers.
