The first weekend of February, Venture Crew and Troop 27 drove up to the Dodge Ridge area for this year’s Klondike. it was certainly a unique experience. Saturday started as usual with everyone building their shelters. Overnight three feet of snow chich caused several shelters to cave in. Backup tents were brought out and many scouts learned a lesson in snow shelter design. There was so much snow that the Sunday activities were canceled, but it didn’t stop scouts from enjoying hot chocolate and soup. Klondike was quite an adventure and a very enjoyable experience that we will always remember.
