Philmont Overview

Philmont Scout Ranch is the Boy Scouts of America's largest national High Adventure Base. Its 35 staffed camps and 55 trail camps provide an unforgettable adventure in the high country along hundreds of miles of rugged, rocky trails.


Troop signed up for a lottery to send 2 Crews to Philmont in 2019. And out of the nation wide lottery our Troop received spots for our 2 Crews. The expedition at Philmont will be from 7/28/19 - 8/9/19 with a travel day on each end of the trip. Each crew can consist of 7-12 participants and must include 2 adults per crew. 

Scouts must be 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and completed the 8th grade by date of participation. Youth must be registered members of the Boy Scouts of America.


The fee that each participant pays for the 2019 expedition will be $970. There will also be additional fees for the plane ticket and bus ride to get to Philmont. The equipment requirements may also require participants to purchase additional equipment. 


The fee to Philmont is paid in 3 parts with the first in January of 2018. So check out Team App to find out the details about the fee.

There will also be a series of activities that prepare the participants physically for the expedition.
