Wachusett Klondike Derby

Sunday, January 27, 2013
Camp Collier
Gardner, MA


Troop 54 will participate in the Nashua Valley Council's Wachusett Klondike Derby. We will camp overnight in tents at Camp Collier, which was formerly an NVC camp.

A Klondike Derby is a Boy Scout winter skill and camping event. Each patrol will pull a sled, loaded with personal and patrol equipment. The Scouts will journey through the woods and fields, up and down the hills, and stop at different activity stations. At these stations, they will be tested on their Scouting knowledge, team work, and problem solving skills, competing against other patrols.
