Philmont 2017 Interest

Crew and Potential Crew Members,

Yes, it's a long way away, however, it is time to put in our reservation request for Philmont 2017. Philmont ( is the premier BSA high adventure base (even if I personally prefer Northern Tier!) and participating in a 12-day backpacking adventure is a life-changing experience. My boys and I have 6 Philmont treks between us and every one was special.

If you are interested, NO LATER THAN SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2015, fill out the SurveyMonkey survey at: Based upon interest, I will submit our reservation request with Philmont.

DO NOT SEND MONEY! If we are awarded one or more treks, we will have a second call for participants in December and fill slots, by lottery, if necessary. First payments will be due in mid-January 2016.

Who Can Participate: 2017 Philmont participants must be 14 years of age (by date of arrival) OR completed the 8th grade and be at least 13 years of age by date of participation. Recommendation: While it is difficult to predict youth height/weight 20 months in advance, youth who might be expected to be under 5 feet tall and 100 lbs should consider waiting an additional year to participate.
