The dates for the next Council contingent have been established! If you have been waiting for your opportunity to hike the trails and bag the peaks at one of the most scenic places in the country, now is your opportunity! Our contingent will attend Philmont Scout Ranch beginning June 20, 2019 through July 2, 2019.

A youth participant must be 14 years old (or 13 years old and have completed the eighth grade) prior to departing for Philmont. He/she must be a registered member of a Boy Scout Troop or Venture Crew. Youth female participation is dependent on the availability of a female adult participant. All participants will want to participate in a hiking/camping training program during the prior year.
The selection of youth crew members will be on a first-come-first-served basis (In-Council has priority), and slots are filling quickly! The contingent will include up to 12 members.
