On January 28, Troop 150 will be participating with two patrols this year.

The Klondike derby is an annual event held by some Boy Scouts of America and Scouts Canada districts during the winter months and is based on the lore of the 1897 Klondike Gold Rush in the Yukon. BSA units have been running Klondike derbies since 1949.

The typical Klondike derby consists of several stations where patrols/units must test their Scoutcraft skills and their leadership abilities, earning points towards a total score. Often, one or more races are included while the Scouts navigate between stations. The unit must transport their gear on a homemade sled pulled by the Scouts.


Adopt-A-Family Program Donations

Sparta Troop 150 Adopt-A-Family Program Donation Page

Sparta Troop 150 takes great pride in the Adopt-A-Family program we run every year to help families and individuals in great need during the Holiday season. Troop 150 Scouts have done this program for over 20 years. The families and individuals that Troop 150 sponsors are provided to us through local community churches. 90% of the items purchased are shoes, socks, coats, essential clothing, blankets, and sometimes just paper goods. The Troop challenges itself to always help as many families as possible.

The Scouts of Troop 150 are directly involved. They get the wish list for each person and then do the actual shopping for these items. They experience the challenge of staying within a budget while trying to get everything requested. They are also often humbled when they see the basic necessities people ask for as Holiday gifts.

The funding that supports this program is raised mainly through donations from people like you and fundraising events conducted by the Scouts! Thank you for considering supporting this Troop 150 community support program.
