Kite Derby

Districts and Packs

Event description

Kite Derby is a one-day event for districts and units to invite prospective Scouts. First- through fifth-graders are invited to attend this family activity where they will make and fly their own kites. Scouts and prospective Scouts can enjoy fellowship, meeting new friends, and lots of food.

  • District: Use this activity as a unit spring or summer activity for new Scouts.
  • Units: Schedule this fun activity for Scouts and prospective Scouts and families.

Both districts and units can do this activity as a great way to heighten community involvement and spread the word about Scouting in the area. The day can start out with a flag ceremony, kite-making, flying kites and more. After a lunch break is the big event: a kite-flying competition.
