Chuckwagon Derby

Pack 54 will be participating in the Mohegan Council Chuck Wagon Derby. In this event, the boys form wagons consisting of a range of ages (Tigers, Wolves, Bears and Webelos Scouts). Each wagon travels from "town" to "town", entirely under kid power, as the boys participate in each town's fun activity.

The Chuckwagon Derby is 12:30M - 6:00 PM on May 13

Family members are welcome. Provide your own food and cooking equipment. You can cook on a campfire or on camp stoves (we will have a couple there and you can bring your own). The camp will not yet be set up for summer camp, so bring your own tent and set it up on the the camp's wood platforms.

Bring stuff to make smores - melt the marshmallows over the camp fire.

Note that per BSA rules, when staying in tents, no youth will stay in the tent of an adult other than his or her parent or guardian. Youth members may share a tent with other youth.

Members may register for the Chuckwagon Derby and the campout separately, but for maximum fun and adventure, participate in BOTH.
