The pinewood derby is one of the most popular and successful family activities in Cub Scouting. Pinewood derby cars are small wooden models that Cub Scouts make with help from their families. Then they race the cars in competition. The cars are powered by gravity and run down a track. Cub Scouts can design and build their own car to enter in the race. Win or lose, Cub Scouts will take pride in having done their best. Cub Scouts learn craft skills, the rules of fair play, and good sportsmanship—things they will remember for life.
Registered Cub Scouts ( kindergaren through 5th grade) and youth considering joining Scouts may register for this event. Registration is $11.50 for the first Scout and $10 for each additional Scout and includes a patch for those pre-registered.
