District Pinewood Derby

The pinewood derby is one of the most popular family activities in Cub Scouting. Pinewood derby cars are small wooden models that Cub Scouts make with help from their families. They then race the cars in competition against other Cub Scouts in their den. The cars are powered by gravity and run down a track. Most packs have a pinewood derby every year. It can be run indoors or outdoors.


Huguenot Trail’s District Pinewood Derby is held every February after the Packs have had a chance to run their own derbies.
