Registration for our 2019 Philmont opens soon. You will use the above link to complete the required online registration.  At the end of the registration there will be an application to complete and submitted along with a $360 deposit. We begin accepting applications/deposits on January 19, 2018. Applications will be accepted until January 31, 2018.

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. The working ranch covers over 200 square miles in the mountains of Northeastern New Mexico. 

This is a great chance for individual Scouts to get to Philmont as a member of a crew made up of Scouts from more than one troop. It is also a chance for troop crews (between 7-12 youth and adults) to join in a council trip rather than planning a trip on their own. 

Plan on attending as a unit not with the council?  Click here for instructions on how to register.

  • It is permissible to for a troop to submit applications for more than one crew along as attendance requirements are met.
  • Troops are permitted to attend consecutive years.
  • Scouters wishing to attend without their troop will be assigned to a crew based upon available space and the troop's (making up that crew) approval.
  • Crew assignments will be determined by Council's High Adventure (volunteer) Advisor.
