Pinewood Derby Days

About Pinewood Derby Days

Welcome to Our Sixth Annual Pinewood Derby Days!

2023-24 Season

Michael’s Woodshop has a well-defined process for Cub Scouts to create their pinewood derby cars. The process begins with a safety briefing and is designed for Cub Scouts to be hands on throughout the process. At the end of their session, Cub Scouts will leave Michael’s Woodshop with a paint ready car.

Early Season Discounts Apply for Sessions Held Before Dec 31

How to Participate

Open Registration Sessions

Our open registration sessions are designed to provide individual Cub Scouts or small groups with the opportunity to design and build their cars. Cub Scout age siblings are welcome to participate. Sessions will open for registration beginning on September 1. Session dates are subject to change before registration begins.

Individualized Sessions

We are happy to accommodate youth who require more individualized assistance. Please email our volunteers at for more information.

Schedule Your Own Pack or Den Session

We offer Full Pack Sessions (up to 4 hrs./18 to 28 Cub Scouts), 1/2 Pack Sessions (up to 2 hours/10 to 16 Cub Scouts) and Den Sessions (up to 2 1/2 hrs./6 to 10 Cub Scouts – weeknights only). Please see our fee schedule for pricing (including our early season discounts).
