Registration details:

  • All Scouters planning to attend must complete the online registration.
  • Upon completion of the registration participants will complete the provided application/agreement & understanding document, which requires a unit leader's signature, and submit it with a deposit in the amount of TBD per person.
  • Council begins accepting applications/deposits on the first day of business of the new year (January 2).
  • Philmont uses the term 'crews' to define Scouters attending as one group; a crew is limited to twelve, with a minimum of seven participants required.  A minimum of two adults must attend with each crew; the maximum number of adults allowed to attend with a crew is four.
  • The minimum crew size requirement must be met prior to applications being submitted.  All of these applications/deposits should be submitted at the same time.  Additions can be made at a later time until the crew limit is met.
  • Fulfillment of available crews as well as requested dates of attendance are assigned in the order in which  troop's applications/deposits are received at Council.  Once the number of crews provided by Philmont are filled additional troops will be placed on a waiting list.
  • It is permissible to for a troop to submit applications for more than one crew along as attendance requirements are met.
  • Troops are permitted to attend consecutive years.
  • Scouters wishing to attend without their troop will be assigned to a crew based upon available space and the troop's (making up that crew) approval.
  • Crew assignments will be determined by Council's High Adventure (volunteer) Advisor.
