This is a day trip.  Scouts must bring their own no-cook lunch, drink, and snack.  Dress warmly, scouts must wear boots.  No sneakers allowed.

Klondike Derby is a Fishawack District event that tests scouts’ skills while competing against other troops in our district. The Klondike Derby consists of “towns” which test each team’s knowledge, skills, teamwork, physical endurance and mental ingenuity.

Typical skills for the Klondike Derby are nature, cooking, scout lore, first aid, orienteering, sled skills, flint and steel, and pioneering. See the Klondike equipment list for details about the skills and equipment needed for each town.  Learn from past experience with these sample questions for Nature and Scout Lore.

See the trip web page for details.

SAVE THE DATE: Camp NoBeBoSco New Scout Trip: March 16-18, 2018


See the trip web page for details.

March is the time for welcoming the new Boy Scouts who are bridging over from Cub Scouts. We’ll be going on our annual New Scout Trip to Camp NoBeBoSco. This trip is an important introduction to Troop 74 for new scouts and their parents. Veteran scouts will have an opportunity to complete rank requirements while being a mentor to the new scouts.

New scouts are required to have a parent attend with them for this first trip. It’s a great way for new scouts to ease into the program and for parents to learn about Boy Scouts first hand and get all of their questions answered from adult leaders.

Veteran scouts will arrive at NoBeBoSco on Friday night and sleep in tents for the weekend. New scouts and their parents will arrive Saturday morning and stay overnight in a heated cabin.
