Philmont 2016



If your Troop/Crew were not selected by Philmont in 2016 we have great news!  There are 12 slots left for your Boy Scout Troop or Venture Crew to join us at Philmont for 2016.  Here are the requirements:


  1. You must have a minimum of 10 participants (youth and adult) but no more than 12 for the trek.
  2.  The dates of the trek at Philmont are June 11 – 26, 2016.
  3.  Troops and Crews will get to set their own trek itinerary and travel arrangements.
  4.  If your Troop/Crew is selected you must have a $1,000 non-refundable deposit sent to the Council office to reserve your slot by June 30, 2015.
  5.   Contact Jeff Brasher at or 205-970-0251 to put your Troop/Crew in the lottery.


This is a first come, first served and an immediate opening.  All submissions must be sent to Jeff Brasher by Wednesday, June 17, 2015.  If your unit is selected and does not have the $1,000 deposit in the two-week window another Troop/Crew will be selected.  This is a great opportunity for you and your Scouts to enjoy a Scouters’ Paradise.
