Philmont Council Contingent 2019
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. http://www.philmontscoutranch.org

Participants must know and use the Scout Oath and Law as their guide to appropriate behavior.
