2018 Philmont Trip

Posted on Sep 21 2016 - 9:11am

Yes, it seems like a long way out, however, because a trek to Philmont requires significat preperation and is extremly popular there is a lottery to reserve your trek.  The lottery for the summer of 2018 opens this October.  The troop is looking to send at least one crew of 8-12 boys including at least 4 adults.  You must be at least 14 at the time of the trip and able to carry 50-60 lbs. up and down mountains for a week.  This is not an easy trip, but it is immensely rewarding. You can learn more about Philmont at http://philmontscoutranch.org  The cost of a trip is likely to around $2000. In the coming weeks we will be looking to see how much interest there is in this trip, so that we might put in for a trek or two if there is enough interest. Now is the time to start discussing this trip with your family.
