Mark your calendars! Saturday, February 6, 2016 - Our Thunderbird Klondike Derby will be held at Cantigny Park in Winfield.
This is an annual Cub Scout event staged by Thunderbird District Boy Scout Troops where Cub Scouts and younger Boy Scouts participate in a variety of outdoor skill events appropriate for wintertime. NOTE: We have moved the February 2016 Klondike to Cantigny Park in Winfield. This event will held jointly with Scouts from the Chanonee District which serves Glen Ellyn, Warrenville, West Chicago, Wheaton, & Winfield. Boy Scouts will continue to have an opportunity to camp on Friday and/or Saturday nights. Look for on-line sign-up to begin in early December.

The Klondike derby is an annual event held by the Boy Scouts of America during the winter months for the benefit of Webelos Scouts and younger Boy Scouts. It is themed around the heritage of the Klondike Gold Rush. Boy Scout units have been running Klondike derbies since 1949. The purpose is to have fun and also allow Webelos to become familiar with various troops who design and run the various Klondike towns.
