Philmont for Procrastinators

Received wisdom says that getting a crew slot at Philmont Scout Ranch is harder than getting a parking space at the mall on Black Friday. But that's not the case for 2015. As of late last week, there were spaces in the schedule for more than 100 crews on 2015 backpacking treks.

Philmont for Procrastinators

Why? Perhaps it's the oversold National Order of the Arrow Conference. Perhaps it's competition from the Summit Bechtel Reserve or other high-adventure bases. Or perhaps Scouters have simply been scared off by the seemingly impossible odds. Whatever the reason, it's not too late to get your troop to Philmont next summer.

For an up-to-date list of available arrival dates, visit (You'll also find contact information on that page.)

Don't delay, however. Like Black Friday sales, this opportunity won't last forever.
