Klondike 2018

posted Dec 29, 2017, 6:26 PM by Cubmaster Pack 92   [ updated Jan 18, 2018, 8:35 PM ]

    Klondike 2018 is quickly approaching.  This is a fantastic opportunity for our Webelo boys for a number of reasons, not least of which is building teamwork as a quasi-patrol unit.  Pack 92 has attended the Klondike's Saturday activities for the last 4 years with great success in the boys coming together completing numerous stations like: smooshboarding, making a fire and cooking a pancake, compass orientation, knot tying, homemade sled races, and many more.  2017 had 4+ feet of snow on the ground!!  It is a fun time for all that attend; boys having fun and learning in the snow while the parents see their young scout growing with others.  
    Webelo 1 and 2 Dens can practice the Klondike events and work on team building January 7th, 2018 at Den Leader Stephanie Glass's home.  Scouts participating in the Klondike will be given some skills to go over and learn during the 1/22 Den meetings.

Important!!
    *Pack 92 has only one "sled" for Klondike currently.  With the number of Scouts signed up we will need to divide up into (2) patrols and will need another "sled" made by some Scouts/parents.  If you can help out with the building of a sled please contact Brian Skinner.
