The Philmont Experience:

Philmont Scout Ranch offers a unique experience that is not risk‐free. Knowledgeable staff will instruct all participants in safety measures to be followed. Be prepared to listen to and carefully follow these safety measures and to accept responsibility for the health and safety of yourself and others. 

Age Requirement

Participants must be registered members of the BSA who will be at least 14 years of age OR completed 8th grade and be at least 13 years of age prior to participation.

Adult Leadership

The best available adult leadership should be recruited to accompany each crew. In keeping with the policy of the Boy Scouts of America, TWO (2) registered adult leaders 21 years of age or over are required at all Scouting activities. There must be a registered female adult leader 21 years of age or older in every unit serving females. A registered female adult must be present for any activity involving female youth. 

Each crew MUST have at least TWO (2) BSA registered adult Advisors. Philmont strongly recommends that each crew participate with THREE (3) adult Advisors. This provides flexibility in the event that an adult Advisor needs to leave the trail. Each crew is required to have a majority of youth participants; the maximum number of adults (21 years and over) is four (4) per crew. 

Each participant must be able to carry a 35 to 50‐pound pack (approximately 25% to 30% of body weight) while hiking 5 to 12 miles per day in an isolated mountain wilderness ranging from 6,500 to 12,500 feet in elevation. Summer/autumn climatic conditions include temperatures from 30 to 100 degrees, low humidity (10 to 30 percent), and frequent, sometimes severe, afternoon thunderstorms. Activities include horseback riding, rock climbing and rappelling, challenge events, pole climbing, muzzle loading shooting, 12‐gauge trap shooting, .30‐06 shooting, trail building, mountain biking, and other activities that have potential for injury. 

Philmont requires that all participants meet the height/weight limits found on the BSA Medical Form and on our website. 

Philmont Fee = $1065

Travel Fee = $250-750

Total Anticipated Fee = $1,365 - $1,865
