East Carolina Council
Scouts, Scouters & Parents:
The dates for the next Council contingent have been established! If you have been waiting for your opportunity to hike the trails and bag the peaks at one of the most scenic places in the country, now is your opportunity! Our contingent will attend Philmont Scout Ranch beginning June 20, 2015 until July 2, 2015. These dates do not include travel time to and from Cimarron, New Mexico. The contingent will include 36 members forming three groups ( otherwise known as crews).
A youth participant must be 14 years old (or 13 years old and have completed the eighth grade) prior to departing for Philmont. He/she must be a registered member of a Boy Scout Troop or Venture Crew. Youth female participation is dependent on the availability of a female adult advisor. All participants will be required to participate in a hiking/camping training program during the prior year.
The selection of youth crew members will be on a first-come-first-served basis, and slots are filling quickly! The first 36 youth & adult applications received at the Council Service Center (accompanied by the reservation fee) will be placed on the “participant list.” Remaining applicants will be placed on an “alternate list.” The Council camping/high adventure committee will select all adult participants and assign crew leadership.
The Philmont Contingent cost is estimated to be $2,200.00. Registration deposit of $100.00 is due with application.
Applications are available below. Return the application with registration fee to: (Make checks payable to East Carolina Council) East Carolina Council, Attn: Philmont Contingent, PO Box 1698, Kinston, NC 28503.
Don’t miss this exciting once in a lifetime experience!
