Get out your hot glue gun, your duct tape and as many cardboard boxes as you can find – it’s time for the annual Camden Snow Bowl Cardboard Box Derby! This is the 6th year of our derby, and it is wicked fun for everybody as the ski season winds down.
To participate, kids and adults build “vehicles” out of cardboard, register to race, and then gather at the start line on the mountain and wait for the timer to say “GO!” The challenge is to get your cardboard box — be it designed to look like a rocket, the Titanic, a shark, a penguin, a lobster boat or just a plain box — and your crew down the course with the fastest time. Dream it up and build it!
There are awards for the Fastest Box (1st, 2nd and 3rd), Most Creative Box, Best Costumes and Most in a Box.
This event is open to all — you don’t have to ski or snowboard to participate. The cost is $25 to register a box vehicle. ALL PARTICIPANTS UNDER 18 MUST HAVE A SIGNED WAIVER FROM A PARENT. If your minor is traveling to the race with another family, please download and sign a waiver for them to bring.
Here’s the details:
Please arrive early to pay and to allow enough time to get organized for the event. Food will be available for sale outside on the deck. Bring your cameras, goggles and a sense of humor!
DON’T FORGET THE SIGNED WAIVERS!
