More than 100 Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts are in Coney Island competing in the annual Klondike Derby.

Troop leaders say the derby helps the scouts learn teamwork, as well as other useful skills they can use in the future.

The scouts take part in several events that teach valuable lessons about the outdoors, such as first aid, rescue and building a survival shelter or shed from scratch.
