What is Philmont and why should you go on a trek? Watch the first 1 minute + 45 seconds of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6c8pMqy1To. The BSA’s Philmont Scout Ranch provides a once in a lifetime adventure along its nearly 400 miles of rugged, rocky trails, valleys, rivers and its breathtaking protected natural beauty. Highlights of the program 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 a unique and action packed journey that will create memories and friendships that last a lifetime. This adventure also includes action packed activities such as white water rafting down the Rio Grande River, riding the Sandi Peak tramway (one of the world’s longest), visiting natural monuments in New Mexico, touring Downtown Albuquerque and touring the National Atomic Museum. The Central Florida Council is enthusiastic to announce the formation of the 2016 Philmont Contingent to be co-led by two highly qualified Scouters: Steve Eisinger and Mark Kluger.
