Philmont is a national High Adventure base, owned by the BSA. It has mountains that dominate rough terrain with an elevation ranging from 6,500 to 12,441ft. The kids and adults who will go will be in a group of up to 12 people called a crew. It will be a 7-day trek with many possible itineraries. One must be 14 years or older OR completed 8th grade and be at 13 years old at the time of participation, and each must meet the health requirements as outlined in the Annual Health and Medical Record. Overall, Philmont is a great opportunity to take a long backpacking trip, and see the great outdoors.
