An adventure at Philmont will be one of the most incredible experiences of your lifetime. During a Rocky Mountain Philmont Adventure Scouts will have the chance to choose the itinerary for their adventure. They will hike 50 miles within the mountains sharing in breathtaking views and accomplishments. Scouts may choose from 35 itineraries similar to the sample itinerary provided on the back of this flyer. Program features combine the best of the Old West—horseback riding, burro packing, gold panning, chuckwagon dinners, and interpretive history—with exciting challenges for today—rock climbing, burro racing, and rifle shooting—in an unbeatable recipe for fast-moving outdoor fun.
To attend Boy Scouts must be 14 years old OR have completed the 8th grade and be at least 13 years old. All participants must meet the Boy Scout Height and Weight requirements. Your Scouts will be attending with leaders from the Northern New Jersey Council.
The cost for the adventure will include food, training, Philmont programming, and travel expenses. Our council contingent will cost each Scout approximately $2,900. Scouts and their parents will have the opportunity to give input as to which adventure the Scout would like to participate in. There are a limited amount of spots open to attend, after our limit is met Scouts will be put on a wait list. To hold your spot, a non-refundable $200 that will go towards the overall cost.
