Mountain View District Scouts Celebrate Winter With Klondike Derby

Scouters of the Mountain View District enjoyed this year's Winter Klondike at Camp Kiesel on February 6 & 7.
The weather worked out great! Scouts enjoyed sleeping in snow caves or tents in the shadow of Fort Kiesel.
Early Saturday morning, units competed to have the fastest klondike sled. Scouts participated in a variety of events including: knot tying, rescue maneuvers, knife and tomahawk throwing, neckerchief making, and sled racing. Varsity and Venture age youth were also able to shoot muzzle loaders.
Special thanks to John and Pam Harris, and the many station coordinators who made this year's event a success!
