2018 Philmont

Philmont 2019 Council Contingent
Our Reservation at Philmont has been confirmed!
We have been granted a contingent of up to 36 participants or 3 crews for Philmont in 2019.
The dates of the trek are from June 10 to June 22.  Troops are allowed to claim one of the crews and will make their own arrangements for travel.
Philmont is 137,493 acres of challenging Scout adventure set in among the mountains and mesas of Northeastern New Mexico. Philmont’s mountain terrain ranges in elevation from 6,660 feet at headquarters to 12, 441 at the top of Mt. Baldy. Wildlife is abundant on Philmont’s forested mountains and grassy plains.
Explore the Philmont high-country on a 12-day backpacking expedition. Experience the thrill of climbing mountains over two miles high. Learn technical rock climbing, archaeological excavation techniques, and black-smithing. Relive the by-gone days of the Old West as you ride a Western saddle horse, learn the ways of the mountain man, pack burros and pan for gold in a clear mountain stream. Discover the wonder of Scouting’s paradise as over 650,000 Scouts and leaders have since 1939.
A Scout must be 14 by January 1 or completed 8th grade prior to participation. A crew is 7 -12 people including 2 leaders. All participants, both youth and adults must meet the Height and Weight requirements.
