Partnered with a parent or guardian, Cub Scouts work together, strengthening bonds and building confidence – and their own custom race cars! They begin with an official Pinewood Derby Race Car kit, then create a design, then carve it from the wood block provided in the kit, and detail it with paint, decals and other accessories, and perfect strategies to compete in their pack’s own Pinewood Derby. 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.


Be sure to make a pit stop at Dan Beard Council Scout Shop’s Champ Camp event on Saturday, January 19, 2019 before the big race day. Learn how to race like a pro by getting expert advice on tools, weights, and accessories. Also, get a chance to weigh your car, take a turn on the practice track, and more! Contact the Dan Beard Council’s Scout Shop at (513) 961-0500 for details.
