"We're not just Horsing around!"
from Paul Cowan:
If you thought Woodbadge produced excited parents and leaders for your unit, you need to send people to Philmont. It is a dirt cheap family vacation for what and where you can go and do. Please allow your families the opportunity to choose classes next summer that will strengthen your program and re-energize your pool of parents. I have been to Philmont twice and have still not been able to do all they have available. It is truly an awesome experience. AND there is an adult recognition knot they work towards.http://usscouts.org/awards/Philmont.asp
Since 1950, Philmont Training Center in Cimarron, New Mexico has served as the National Training Center of the Boy Scouts of America. Each summer, conferences are conducted at “PTC” by the various departments and committees of the BSA national council. In 2012 there are dozens of exciting conferences to choose from that cover all aspects and programs of Scouting! You are invited! Don’t miss the chance to go to PTC next summer. Plus individuals who register by December 31, 2011 will qualify for the early bird registration price!
One of the most unique opportunities of a week at PTC is the chance to enjoy the magic of Philmont with your family. While you learn the “best methods” of Scouting in your conference, your family members will enjoy hikes into the Philmont backcountry, horseback rides, crafts, games, and so much more! You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to explore Philmont and the surrounding area together as a family. This will surely be a Scouting adventure you will never forget.
