Greater Tampa Bay Area Council Philmont Contingent, 2019
We are now accepting deposits for the 2019 Greater Tampa Bay Area Council Trek to Philmont. As you know, it is every Scout’s dream to experience the ultimate camping experience and THE outdoor adventure of a lifetime. Individual Scouts are encouraged to register. This is a great opportunity for a Scout to get a chance to go to Philmont if his Troop is not able to attend in their own crew.
The Council is offering an expedition to Philmont Scout Ranch from July 4th, 2019 through July 17th, 2019. (The travel time(s) will be confirmed, once our flight(s) are set with the airline/van services) Philmont is BSA’s High Adventure backpacking base in the Sangre de Christo range of New Mexico in the southern Rocky Mountains. Participants will backpack more than 50 miles in the back country of New Mexico, participate in unique programs and have a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our contingent is limited to 20 youth and 4 adult leaders so apply early. One crew is filled, and there are openings for youth and adult members in the other crew…
