2018 Klondike Derby

Camp Illinek

Boy Scouts, come join us and test your mettle in the towns of the Illinek Territory on Lake Springfield this January.  The 2018 Klondike Derby will be held on January 19-20 and stakes will be OVER $1,000 in REAL GEAR for your patrol.  Challenges will be held in search and rescue, ropework, first aid, compass skills and teamwork, among others.  We will also mix a few elements of FUN along the way.

The Boy Scout handbook will be your guide, but your Scout spirit will be needed to warm your souls. So fashion your sleds and wax your skis, (or oil your wheels) and BE PREPARED for the Challenge of the Winter!

Check in:  Check in will be held in Booth Lodge from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm Friday evening at booth lodge. 

Events:  All patrols will need to go through Sled/patrol check-in, get ready for the day’s activities, in order to compete.  (Refer to the Scoutmaster’s Guide for times and guidelines) The ‘towns” will open about 9am, close for lunch and close for the day later afternoon.  Patrols will need to check out at Booth Lodge to be able to access their earned points for the auction.  Click here for Derby event listings.

Auction:        The points earned from the day’s activities will be used in a LIVE auction Saturday afternoon where patrols can bid on various pieces of camping equipment for their patrol or Troop.

Leaders Guide:  The information here is brief to help you understand what will generally be going on at the Klondike Derby. We have made some changes this year, so please read the ENTIRE leader’s guide for up-to-date rules, tips for success, and other information that is vital to having a smooth-running event for over 400 people in attendance.
