Philmont 2018

Posted on Jan 28 2017 - 9:44am

We won the Philmont lottery for summer 2018! We are guaranteed 2 treks (up to 24 people) departing 8/5/2018, so long as we make a $1,400 deposit by 1/31/2017. We are expecting to be allowed to move up one of the treks (up to 12 people) to depart on 7/15/2018 and will confirm the earlier departure date before making the first payment. Please note, 2018 Philmont youth participants must be 14 years of age on date of arrival OR have completed the eighth grade and be at least 13 prior to participation. Also, each crew (7-12 participants) must have a majority of youth and is limited to a maximum of four (4) adults over 21 years of age

Each trek will take about 2 weeks including 12-days at Philmont plus 2 days travel. The cost per Scout is $940 plus travel, so the total cost could be as high as $1,500, prior to any Troop subsidies from the tree lot. The Philmont experience is a one-of-a-kind backpacking trip through the New Mexico Rocky Mountain Range with awesome activities at each campsite along the way such as rifle shooting, rock climbing, horse riding, etc. When your team completes the difficult journey together, you will attain a confidence and sense of accomplishment like never before. For more information, please read below, follow the links, or talk with one of the few who has completed the journey (e.g., Mr. Blocker, Peter C., Carson, Ivan, etc.)
