Get Prepared For A Backpacking Adventure That Will Be The Highlight Of Your Scouting Career!
We’ll be hiking at least 50 miles along rugged, rocky trails in the mountains of New Mexico. Along the way, we will participate in programs that combine the best of the old West—horseback riding, burro packing, gold panning, chuck wagon dinners, and interpretive history—with exciting challenges for today—rock climbing, burro racing, mountain biking, and rifle shooting—in an unbeatable recipe for fast-moving, outdoor fun. It is truly a wonderful experience and something that won’t ever be forgotten.
We anticipate the all-inclusive fee to be an estimate: $2700. This includes crew equipment, supplies, training treks, transportation to and from New Mexico, Philmont fees, and custom T-shirts. Final price depends on airfare and other things. Partial scholarships may be available.
