Winter is one of the best seasons to do Scouting. That is why we hold this annual campout and race. Klondike events are designed for you to have a few laughs while working together as a team. Some events are a little more serious in nature, while the rest are just intended to let you enjoy the wonderful winter weather and have a great time at the Klondike. So let off a little bit of steam and get into the flow of the activities – you’ll find some challenges ahead while keeping warm!
Join us this January 18-19 at Morgan Zarahemla for a weekend filled with snow, fun, & prizes! We can’t wait to see you there!
Regularly $8 for Scouts and $4 for Leaders!
Online registration will end on January 16, 2019. Day-of registrations at the event will be accepted. A late fee of $8 (Youth) and $4 (Adult) will be charged for those who pay at the event.
Each Registrant will receive a patch. If you would like more, the cost is $3 each.

So you know your knots, do you? Well, you’ll have to prove your patrol can tie any one of the First Class knots correctly. This event will be put on by the Farmington South/ Center South Zones
Let’s see how well you can assess and treat specific winter-related ailments. This event will be put on by the Farmington Oakridge / Farmington West Zones.
Primitive Fire Starting
How fast can you build a fire hot enough to burn through a string tied above your fire ring? This event will be put on by the Farmington North Zone/ Farmington.
How far is it to cross that river? How high is that particular landmark? (Handbook, pg. 122). This event will be put on by the Centerville Zone/Canyon View.
Test your memory skills as a patrol. This event will be put on by the Centerville North Zone.
Short Track Speed Race
This annual event features your own patrol sled in a race to secure the fastest time. You’ll have to designate the ‘dogs’ and a ‘musher.’ The idea behind this race is to be the fastest to negotiate the course the OA has devised for you. Sled plans are available on the internet. Do a google search and pick one that suits your fancy. Each troop must have at least one sled which may be shared by patrols.
We’re up here to have some fun and interact with other scouts. We want this to be a youth event, so leaders, please prepare before you arrive. If any leaders “interfere” with the youth competition their patrol/troop will automatically be disqualified from that event. Come up the mountain, and we will have some winter fun together. You’ll like the change of pace even though the pace will not let up. You'll still want to prepare and do your best!
Each patrol will need to bring: Sled with pull ropes or push poles, Patrol First Aid Supplies for each patrol.
