Every year more than a million Cub Scouts and adult partners team up to participate in a Pinewood Derby, a tradition that goes back generations. As an adult and Cub Scout design, carve, paint, weigh, refine and race the car, a bond of partnership is created. This is at the heart of the Pinewood Derby’s success. In addition, Cub Scouts build confidence and take pride in their own growing skills and hard work. 

It all starts with a simple block of wood and the desire to Do Your Best. Once built each Pack runs their own individual Pinewood Derby at different churches, halls or even outside! Each Scout should be proud of the car they created and have hopes of making it to the next level, the Nashua Valley Council Championship Race!
