As some of you may know, the troop has been awarded a rare opportunity. A chance to experience Philmont Scout Ranch! It may seem to be a long way off but in order to hold the opportunity we must provide an initial deposit by January 30, 2015. The total breakdown of the cost is as follows. Please note that payments are NOT refundable, however, we can transfer to others if needed. We will be filling one crew of a maximum of 12 individuals. We must have a minimum of 4 youth and 3 adults committed before January 30, 2015. The following payment schedule is set to meet Philmont deadlines.
Dates: 7/29/2016 – 8/9/16
All youth must be 14 years of age by the date of arrival, 7/29/16. This is a full 12 day trec. With travel, the crew will be gone a total of 14 days, (7/28/16 – 8/10/16). These costs look expensive but those who have experienced Philmont assure you this is an opportunity all scouts should consider. ASM Rob Rapp has personally been to Philmont twice and has shared that on both occasions, he watched each and every scout grow in ways they would not have had anywhere else. “I simply cannot over estimate the power this place will have on your son.” Please feel free to visit their website: Philmont Scout Ranch. Everyone is encouraged to take a look at some of the videos and activities that will be available at Philmont. Please contact ASM Rob Rapp if you have any questions regarding this info.
