2019 Klondike Derby

Camp Illinek

20,000 Leagues Under Lake Springfield


Your journey begins aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, with the Good Doctor Aronnax, but rapidly deteriorates into an epic journey as the ship is attacked by a “Mysterious Sea Monster” and your patrol is pressed into service aboard the Nautilus. Gather your Patrol and join the adventures of Captain Nemo as he navigates the waters surrounding Camp Illinek as part of the 2019 Klondike Derby.  


The cost for the derby is $15 per person. Registration must be received by January 14th. Late registrations will be charged an additional $5. Each Patrol should consist of no more than 8 Scouts.

Optional Camping

Camping is available to Units as an optional component of the derby. For those units wishing to construct shelters, Camp will be available on the 12th. Shelter construction should avoid the following areas: The Compass Course, Lyman Grove, BB Gun Range and nature trail.  Shelters built for weekend camping will not be counted towards the scoring total. All shelters must be deconstructed following Leave No Trace principles before departing camp.
