For 2018 a Philmont trip is planned, we have 3 Crews of 12 going.

Philmonts signature program is the High-Adventure Expedition. Each 12-day expedition provides opportunities for participants to:

 Explore the high country in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of northeastern New Mexico.

  • Experience the thrill of climbing mountains over two miles high.
  • Participate in a wide array of activities that teach Scouting skills—archaeology, backpacking, camping, climbing, fishing, forestry, horsemanship, Indian lore and much more.
  • Develop leadership, group dynamics, and wilderness problem-solving, and outdoor skills. Crews hike Philmont's mountains, spending nights at various backcountry camps. At staffed camps, crews can participate in a variety of programs presented by Philmont backcountry staff. Among these programs are horseback riding, burro packing, gold panning, rock climbing, .30-06 rifle shooting, archaeology, spar pole climbing, mountain biking and interpretive programs such as homesteading and mountain man rendezvous.

 If you decide to apply to attend Philmont, you must be physically fit, have proper clothing and equipment and be willing to follow instructions and work as a team with your crew and take responsibility for your own health and safety. Philmont is not risk free and you should be prepared to listen to safety instructions carefully, follow directions and take appropriate steps to safeguard yourself and others. The High Adventure Committee selects adult participants based upon adult to youth participation ratio, Scouting Background and BSA Policy. All participants must be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America.
