Parent Meeting - Philmont Scout Ranch

What: Parent Meeting - Philmont Scout Ranch
When: Monday, December 17, 2018

Hello Parents!

We have the rare opportunity to do a seven day backpacking trek at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. Our Scouts and adults will form a crew; 9 Scouts and 3 adults and backpack 30-40 miles over seven days. Each day will be spent backpacking to a new campsite, some with special activities such as fishing, climbing, horseback riding and railroading. See this short video on the adventures of Philmont.

In preparation for this backpacking adventure, we would like to have a parent meeting during an upcoming troop meeting. Please plan on joining us for some great information and great company, away from the scouts while they have their meeting.

Thank you
