2022 Susquehanna Klondike Yukon Gold Rush

The night air is getting colder and hopefully a blanket of snow will soon cover the ground. Get those snow tires and skis ready, now is the time to prepare your Scouts for the most adventurous winter event of the year, the 2022 “Yukon Gold Rush” Klondike!

We encourage you to brave the elements and join us the weekend of February 4th through 6th for the privilege of winter camping at J. Edward Mack Scout Reservation.

Saturday during the day we will challenge your Scouts and their leadership skills through a hands-on experience in decision-making. They will work as Patrols and be scored as Patrols. There will be a place and a learning experience for everyone, from the newest Scout to the oldest most experienced Scout. Saturday night we encourage you to invite other Troops to a campfire in your camp site for an evening of fun and fellowship.

Lunch will be the responsibility of each Patrol at their Troop camp site. All Stations will be closed from 12:00 Noon to 1:00 PM to allow everyone time to eat, rest and if necessary, warm-up.

Klondike Derby sleds are a very important part of this winter event. We would prefer to see patrols build new sleds to the provided specifications. Previous sleds that are adapted to specifications are acceptable. Prepare your Scouts, sharpen their skills, and come prepared for an adventure in the winter snows of Camp Mack. “Be Prepared”, “Do Your Best” and “Show Scout Spirit”!
