Second Payment for Philmont Twelve Day Trek Space Reservation - 7/21-8/2/2019
Troop 15 -
We put in for a 12 day trek in 2019 and were lucky enough to land reservations for two Crews. The 12 day trek will commence on July 21 and end on August 2, 2019. (Note: these dates don't include travel to/from Philmont.)
To continue to hold our reservations and reserve your slot, the Final Payment for Scouts and Adults is $435.
This is a non-refundable deposit but they can be individually transferred to another Scout or Adult before we submit the final attendee list in early 2019. The final cost per attendee, not including transportation, will be $970. Scholarships are available from Philmont and the Troop.
To be eligible to attend, a youth must be 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and completed the 8th grade by July 21, 2019.
Both youth and adult crew members must meet the height and weight requirements as well. Those can be found here: http://www.philmontscoutranch.org/Camping/WhoCanCome/HealthMedicalRequirements.aspx?
Crews are Philmont's version of a Patrol and can be co-ed. They range in size from 7 (minimum) to 12 (maximum). Each crew needs to have at least 2 adult members and adults should not outnumber youth participants in a crew. That being said, I think we have plenty of room for interested leaders, both male & female.
If you - Scouts and Adults - are on the fence about going, I would strongly encourage you to go. The Troop will be taking plenty of hikes and backpacking trips to prepare for the trip and we'll ensure that every Scout gets the training they need to have a great time at Philmont.
Philmont is for many the epitome of the Scout experience. The trek will leave one with great memories that will last a lifetime...and draw you back again!
If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call me.
