Great Yukon Race Print
Saturday, January 21 2017

Planning for the 2017 Great Yukon Race is underway. The race has been growing every year, therfore we need more volunteers than ever. If you, or anyone you know, are interested please email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it with the subject Yukon 2017, so I don't overlook your email. The race will be held this year on the 21st of January. Since we had to reschedule it last year, for a couple reasons, an alternative date will be set. Thank you everyone! - Clay Zinn


The Great Yukon Race is held annually at Camp Mountaineer. Troop Patrols and Venturing Crews compete in this combination speed and skill challenge.

Scouts must be prepared to demonstrate knowledge in an array of Scouting skill areas. Judging is based on level of performance and how quickly Patrols complete the course

The year is 1897 and the gold rush in Canada’s Yukon Territory has begun! The team’s mission is to visit each of eight stations or “towns” and work the activity to earn gold nuggets from the “town mayor” while trying to complete the race as fast as possible!
