2017 Council Philmont Contingent OPEN
Attention Scouts and Venturers!
The Jayhawk Council has been awarded a contingent for the 2017 Philmont season. This is a twelve-person crew that will trek from June 24-July 6, 2017.
The Jayhawk Area Council regularly sponsors contingents to Philmont Scout Ranch. Philmont is a high adventure base located in the Sangre de Cristo mountains of northern New Mexico. It consists of 137,000 acres of mountainous terrain laced with hundreds of miles of trails. This is a backpacking adventure of a lifetime and an opportunity for fellowship with scouts from all over the world.
Backpacking treks at Philmont are physically, mentally and emotionally demanding. Adequate preparation is essential. Participants will be required to attend three mandatory training campouts and one pre-departure shakedown.
