2021 Klondike Derby

February 12 @ 6:00 pm - February 14 @ 10:00 am

Saluting Our Essential Heroes

The year… 2020… wreaked havoc with our daily routines, school, work, recreation, and most importantly, SCOUTING!!!

This 2021 Chester County Council Klondike Derby is all about thanking the many essential workers who had to perform in the most extraordinarily unknown circumstances in 2020. While many of us stayed at home, working remotely or binging our favorite shows, medical professionals put their lives on the line to treat patients. Grocery store clerks manned their registers and stocked shelves. Truckers delivered supplies across the country. Postal service workers and delivery drivers brought us our mail and online purchases. First responders were always on call, ready to serve at a moment’s notice. And the list goes on and on.

When:                        February 12-14, 2021

Where:                       Camp John H. Ware, III

Event Check In:      Saturday, 8:30 AM at Camp Ware Dining Hall Porch

Program Begins:    9 AM Sharp!

Unless COVID restrictions change, there will be no lodges, cabins, or indoor camping available, though units may indicate on the registration if they are interested in indoor camping should it become available.

Campsite registration is ‘first-come, first served’ in Camp Ware and Camp Horseshoe. Should COVID further limit the number of campers allowed, spaces will be filled in the ordered they were received. Camping fees apply to registered Units.
