Boy Scouts Pinewood Derby

The Boy Scouts annual Pinewood Derby is coming up this year so rev up your engines! The Pinewood Derby is a wooden car race. Decades of Cub Scouts have been building and racing Pinewood Derby cars since 1953. Partnered with a parent or adult mentor, Cub Scouts work together, strengthening bonds and building confidence – and their own custom race cars! They begin by choosing a car design, then carve it out and detail it with paint, decals and other accessories. The cars are powered by gravity and will race down a track. They will compete within their own packs. Awards for the best looking car and the winner of the race will be awarded. Every scout will be recognized for his participation. The race is about the fun of building and creating with family.

It’s s a wonderful learning experience centered on teamwork, ingenuity and sportsmanship – all for the thrill of the race and a lifetime of great memories to share with fellow racers young and old.
