Philmont Survey

Posted on Jan 30 2022 - 1:20pm

At last week’s Troop meeting we announced our next high adventure trip will be Philmont in July 2023. The Heart of New England Council has reserved crews, and will take care of trip planning. The Troop/Scout will require to do some work, but Council will do most of the heavy lifting. Due to a limited number of crews we require a response to Council as soon as possible to reserve a slot.

With an informal show of hands we ask which Scouts have interest to go. Now it is time to collect a more structured interest in participation.

- A Scout must be either 14 years old, or completed the 8th grade, prior to the start of Philmont.
- At least two Troop 3 adults must accompany the Scouts
- Estimated cost is $3000 per person
- First payment of $500 due on 01Mar2022

Attached (below) is a survey to ask the Scout if they plan to attend, and if any adult in the Scout’s household plans to attend.

Please complete this survey prior to next week’s Troop meeting, and do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or comments.

There are a number of Scouts, and Adults, in the Troop who attended the last Philmont trip, and will be more than happy to share their stories.
