This form is for individual registrations for Philmont 2023.
Upon registration, a $600 deposit is required to secure the spot. Initial deposit can be made directly online, by check mailed to the council service center, or by visiting one of the Scout shops. Completion of the online registration is required regardless of payment method.
There is an additional 3% charge for all credit card payments, which is the council's cost. The 3% credit card processing fee is the same regardless of paying directly online or through the council office and Scout shops. Payments by cash or check will not incur a 3% processing fee.
Subsequent payments are due per the payment schedule below - either online or directly to Patriots' Path Council:
$606 on or before 6/15/2022
$606 on or before 8/15/2022
$606 on or before 10/15/2022
$607 on or before 2/15/2023
$TBD on or before 4/15/2023 (additional payment if needed due to fuel cost or other factors)
There will be a supplemental fee charged to each member of a crew that has less than 12 members. The fee will equal $50 multiplied by the number of crew members under the required 12. (Example: A crew member’s fee would be $100 higher for a crew with only 10 members).
If the number of crews is fewer than 16 on May 1, 2022, Patriots’ Path Council reserves the right to cancel one or more contingents, and/or to reassign crews from canceled contingents to open slots in the remaining contingents. Deposits will be returned to any crew whose contingent is canceled by the council, and that crew will be given priority choice in the 2024 contingents.
Contingent 629 - June 27 - July 11, 2023
Contingent 630 - June 29 - July 12, 2023
Patriots’ Path Council does not provide trip insurance for its Philmont participants as it is less expensive for individuals to purchase trip insurance for themselves than it is for the council to purchase a group policy. The council strongly recommends that each family consider purchasing trip insurance that may best meet their needs.
For all High Adventure programs offered by the Patriots’ Path Council, BSA, a great deal of planning and purchasing takes place well in advance. This includes plane and bus transportation, lodging, program activities, meal plans, brochures, etc. When an individual cancels his or her reservation prior to departure, he or she risks losing some, if not all, of his or her balance paid to date.
As stated on the application, $100 of the initial fee is non-refundable. Only those monies that have not been committed to any of the program expenses can be refunded. The committee chair and the staff advisor who oversees that committee will determine the amount of the refund, if any. It is possible that airline tickets may be obtained for personal use. It is the responsibility of the participant to contact our travel agent to make this arrangement.
ALL REQUESTS FOR REFUNDS MUST BE MADE IN WRITING AND SENT TO:
PATRIOTS’ PATH COUNCIL, 1 SADDLE ROAD, CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J. 07927.
Registration fees for High Adventure programs, such as Philmont or National Jamboree, include an estimated sum for transportation costs for plane and bus fees. These fees are subject to significant fluctuation beyond the control of Patriots’ Path Council and fees charged are based on a best estimate of projected cost. To the extent that Patriots’ Path Council is able to achieve actual transportation costs significantly lower than budgeted, participants may receive a refund of a portion of their registration fees. The refund of registration fees due to transportation cost savings, and the amount thereof, will be determined by the Finance Management Committee. Other than for transportation costs as set forth herein, Patriots’ Path Council will not refund registration fees to participants of any High Adventure program based upon favorable variance from the event or program’s budget.
In the event that a program or activity is canceled by Patriots’ Path Council for any reason, the refund of registration fees will be determined by the Finance Management Committee, considering program expenses already incurred, the overall budget for the event or program, the reason for the cancellation, and the financial ability of the council to make any refund.
