Come join Trail Life troops from across New England for a Klondike Derby at New England Frontier Camp (NEFC) in Lowell, ME, from February 10-12, 2023! Teams of Trailmen (Adventurers, Navigators, and second-year Mountain Lions) will compete against each other through an obstacle course of winter challenges including sled construction, first aid, fire building, outdoor cooking and simulated ice rescues. Participating teams will need to build their sleds ahead of time and bring them to the Derby.
For plans for your Klondike sled, click on the picture below. Troops may want to consider one substitution . . . instead of building the runners, it is recommend that the Trailmen scavenge a used pair of skis (often available at Goodwill or other thrift stores) for the runners.

The cost is $20 per Trailman or leader, and you’ll need to reserve your spot by registering here. There are options for lodging in a heated dormitory and prepared meals…which should warm the soul on those cold winter nights! Pay with credit card (no PayPal account needed) by January 9, 2023, with the number of Trailmen and leaders you’ll be bringing. Please reach out with any questions and help spread the word!
