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.  For a copy of LEADERS’ GUIDE, click HERE

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!

Building Christian Disciples Through God’s Word and Outdoor Experiences
New England Frontier Camp has been located in Southwestern Maine for over 55 years. Our camp is set in the foothills of the White Mountains alongside beautiful Kezar Lake featuring rustic cabins and lodges.

We are a non-denominational Christian ministry. Our mission calls us to glorify Jesus Christ by developing people of God who are dynamic disciples and dynamic disciple-makers.

We are building loving, solid, and Godly young people. In addition to the principles found in God’s Word, the Bible, we also highly value and encourage campers to live The Seven Points of Valor; Honor, Courage, Chivalry, Purity, Loyalty, Obedience, and Dedication.

Our programs and facility emphasize the importance of outdoor experiences. We live in a time when being “connected” can be a challenge to good development. Our programs center on building better connections with the people and world around us. Campers truly experience being “unplugged” at New England Frontier Camp. Typically our programs are separated by gender and age, to best develop youth in the areas critical to where they are in life.
