Operation Polar Bear XIV is upon us. February 21-23 at Pine Hill Scout Reservation, expeditions from Quakesen and Mahalala districts will compete in a multiple “city” course to determine who is the ultimate prospector. These “cities” will test the scout’s knowledge of basic camping and survival skills, as well as problem solving and teamwork. Each expedition is required to have a sled with certain equipment.
