Klondike Derby / Cabin Campout

The annual River Trails District Klondike Derby will be held on Saturday, February 6, at Beaumont Scout Reservation. We will be camping in an enclosed cabin/ shelter at West Tyson County Park, just a few minutes from Beaumont, at the Beaumont/Antire exit from I-44. In addition to the fun of the camp, itself, there will be many events at the Klondike, to include:

Cold—Weather Gear: Scouts will hear a brief overview of some useful cold—weather gear and techniques, then patrols will compete in an obstacle course in which proper layering is a key to success.
Shelter: Scouts will learn various sheltering techniques, then will apply those
techniques in an obstacle course.
*Requires 1 tarp per patrol
First Aid: Scouts will discuss cold—related first aid situations, then patrols will compete in a toboggan stretcher race. Awards will be given for the fastest and slowest times.
Retort Cooking: After a brief introduction to the retort method of cooking, each scout will prepare and cook an omelet in a Ziploc bag using boiling water. Scouts will need to bring their own eggs, as well as any desired additional ingredients
(ham, cheese, onion, peppers etc). Please make sure all additional ingredients
are pre-cooked and ready to go in order to ensure that everyone finishes their
*Requires 1 egg per participant
Games: Scouts will play ga—ga ball or kickball to stay warm and have some fun!
