On January 19, the Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts of Pack 56 took part in the District Wild Klondike Derby, an all-day event at Camp Squanto that has Scouts take part in a variety of winter-themed activities. Each Pack fields a sled that the Scouts need to pull around the camp and in certain activities use to complete their tasks. For example, in one they have to work as a team to carry the sled through a web of ropes. In another they have to carry one Scout on the sled across a simulated river. Other activities included sawing a log, setting up a bear bag, making their way through a “blizzard”; and more. The Scouts stayed warm with a hot meal and hot chocolate for lunch and at the end of the day, everyone took part in a fun Klondike sled race. Pack 56 didn’t win the race, but they had a lot of fun together.
