Iron Forge Klondike

The Iron Forge District’s Klondike Derby will be held at the J. Edward Mack Scout Reservation on January 29, 2022. Troops/crews may camp overnight Friday, January 28, & Saturday night, January 29. WE WILL BE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDED GUIDELINES FOR OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AS PER STATE AND FEDERAL MANDATES. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
Each individual entering into camp must complete and turn in the “Pre-Event Medical Screening Checklist” to their unit. A copy of this form is located at the end of the Leader guide.
We will NOT accept registrations after January 21, 2022, due to the planning and purchasing of food and supplies. If your registration and money are not in Tentaroo by 5:00 p.m., on January 21, 2022, your Scouts will not be participating in the Klondike Derby.
Volunteers are needed again to ensure we have a great event. Volunteers should report to the Head Mayor for the event they are volunteering for at the Mayors meeting for their assignment.
Three events will be taking place simultaneously. Webelos Klondike Derby for Pack Webelos and AOL dens; Scouts BSA Klondike Derby for Scouts BSA Troops; and Iron Will for Scouts who are at least 14 and met First Class requirements as well as all Venturing Scouts.
Since we are looking forward to snow, BE PREPARED!!! It is unlikely that the Klondike Derby will be canceled or postponed due to weather conditions, but perhaps due to crisis circumstances. However, if a decision is made to cancel or modify the event, announcements will be made as soon as possible.
The Leader guide contains all the details that you will need to prepare your Unit to participate in the first ever Iron Forge Klondike Derby!
Your Klondike Derby committee hopes that all of you have a happy and safe experience! Your host & chairman, Sheldon Brubaker, can be reached at 717-721-3863 (H) or 717-468-5333 (C).
