HomeScouting’s Cyber Sled Race returns this January with an all new immersive experience as participants Mine for Gold in the Alaskan wilderness. This unique experience puts you into the boots of a miner during the Alaskan gold rush as you try to stake a claim, hit it rich, and build your fortune! Participants will learn how miners faced the wild to claim territory, how to pan for gold with an exclusive, interactive webinar with gold panning expert Tony Ledford, and learn how to manage their money to make smart financial decisions. There will be a schedule for Cyber Sled Race for those looking for structure, however families can complete the activities at their own pace on their own time. Content will be available on the race course at any time to meet the needs of families.
