Pinewood Ready To Race Events
WHAT IS IT?
The Ready To Race Day Camp is meant to help Scouts with car cutting, painting, and tuning - something traditionally done as a Pack or Den activity. Offered at the Cabrillo Youth Center, Cushman Watt Scout Center, or at Trask Scout Reservation, stations will be available to help Scouts with rough cutting (both hand and power tools), finishing (rasps & sandpaper), painting (solid color spray paint), and attaching weights & wheels. Camp concludes with a practice run on an official Pinewood Derby track. Day Camp Staff will be available at each station to assist the Scout and their adult partner.

WHEN DO WE RACE?
Once all the Scouts in your Pack have completed their cars, (either at the Ready To Race camp or at home) you will be ready for your Pack Pinewood Derby. The Cabrillo Beach Youth Center and Trask Scout Reservation will be hosting several Day Camp dates to support area Cub Scout Packs with Pinewood Derby races next Spring (COVID rules permitting). Packs will be able to sign up for competition dates. Competition dates must be held under Day Camp COVID rules.
