Philmont Trek - 2016

Philmont - 2016
We have the chance for another High Adventure @ Philmont during Summer, 2016!!  This is the pinnacle of the High Adventure experience for scouts and provides them with a lifetime of memories.  In 2016, we have been given the opportunity to send TWO crews to Philmont (24 people, probably 18 scouts and 6 adults).  The crews will be at Philmont on the same dates, which enables us to travel as one large group.  These are 12-day backpacking treks, which are designed for older, larger scouts.  As with most High Adventures, the youngest scouts should be entering high school in the fall of 2016.
