AOL/Klondike Derby

Recommended Posts

Will participating in a Klondike Derby satisfy the Arrow of Light requirement for attending an outdoor Boy Scout Event? Thanks for your opinions

Kind of a cold way to satisfy an Arrow of Light Requirement. Personally, if I had a say I would suggest an alternative because I believe that winter camping potentially not a good thing for Cub level Scouts. That's just a personal opinion from the aspect of keeping kids safe and happy. Don't want to rain on a party, and I guess it would work under close supervision, but i would'nt reccommend it. Good Luck to you!

MORE POWER TO A BOY WHO WILL TACKEL A KLONDIKE DERBY TO SATISFY THIS REQUIRMENT. WISH ALL WEBELOS WOULD SHOW THIS MUCH DESIRE.

HANG ON TO HIM HE WILL BE A GREAT SCOUT.

The cold weather campout is a tradition in our Pack that is reserved for 2nd year Webelos only! This has been how all of the scouts who have come through our pack have completed that particular Arrow of Light requirement. The boys look forward to the time when they get to go as their older brothers did, and we even have a special "32 degree Thermometer Slide" that is made by parent volunteers and awarded to those boys at the Pack meeting following their campout. They love it and wouldn't miss it for anything!

Never looked at it from a a traditional point of view. This is an uncommon and brave move by a Webelos Scout, and he will no doubt make a good Scout as well, most likely an Eagle. Just be careful :)
