Every year over a million Cub Scouts participate in Pinewood Derbies around the world, a tradition that goes back generations.
Cub Scouts and their adult "assistants" work together to design, carve, paint, weigh, refine, and race their cars, a bond of partnership is created. For Cub Scouts the Pinewood Derby build confidence and take pride in their own growing skills and hard work. So enjoy the ride!
Webelos & Bears receive Pinewood Derby car kits through their Den Leaders. Kits include wheels, axles, and a wooden block—everything you need to get started.
