National Retires Space Derby Program

Unfortunately, due to ongoing supply chain issues, Space Derby kits were eliminated by the supplier, and after reviewing membership participation over the last several years, the decision to retire the Space Derby program has been made by National.

If a pack or den is planning a Space Derby event, there is still inventory at the Kurland Family Scout Shop in Cedar Knolls and at the Mountainside Scout Shop while supplies last. Patriots’ Path Council’s national distributer inventory has been depleted, so these items will not be replenished.

When finally gone, raingutter regattas are great alternatives to a Space Derby event. And for those Scouts who still dream of “racing to the stars,” classic solid fuel rocket programs are also an option.
