PHILMONT SCOUT RANCH
Philmont Scout Ranch, the Boy Scouts of America's premier high-adventure base, challenges Scouts and Venturers in the rugged outdoors. Participants will enjoy exploring the more than 200 square miles of rugged New Mexico wilderness, which includes a variety of activities over a 12-day trek at Philmont. The Philmont Contingent Committee reserves the right to not accept a registration if the candidate is not fit physically or emotionally for the trip. (www.philmontscoutranch.org)
The Mid-America Council will be sending a council contingent to Philmont Scout Ranch in 2018! We are planning to send 4 crews of up to 48 total participants.
Individual or group registrations will be accepted. Must be a currently registered Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, Venturer, or Sea Scout.
Minimum age: Philmont requires that all youth must be 14 years of age OR 13 years of age AND have completed the 8th grade. NO EXCEPTIONS. Philmont has maximum height/weight ratio requirements to insure that participants are physically capable of the expedition. You can find information on these requirements here. Participants must know and use the Scout Oath and Law as their guide to appropriate behavior.
June 16 - July 1, 2018 (dates confirmed)
Participants will receive additional information late 2016, throughout 2017 and early 2018 related to travel arrangements, program opportunities, and trip preparations. The Mid-America Council reserves the right to add qualified participants to all crews up to the maximum registration limit.
