Explore the Philmont high country in northeastern New Mexico on a 12 day backpacking expedition. Challenge yourself as you climb mountains over two miles high. Programs include technical rock climbing, archeological excavation techniques, horseback riding, rifle shooting, blacksmithing and more. Discover the adventure of Scouting’s Paradise as over 1 million Scouts, Venturers, Explorers and leaders have since 1939.

Minsi Trails Council offers a 12 day backpacking trip at Philmont with a 1-2 day pre-trip as part of our expeditions. Generally, our trip runs early to mid - July and continues for a 2 week period. Each “Crew” is made up of 7 to 12 people, with a 2 adult minimum and 4 adult maximum on each crew. Scouts must be 14 years of age or 13 years of age and have completed the 8th grade. All participants must be registered in the BSA. Fees include transportation to and from the airports, airline flights, a 1-2 day pre-trip in Colorado, and fees for the Philmont excursion itself.

Interested? We will be accepting applications and deposits for our 2019 Trip. Applications will be accepted beginning Jan 1, 2018. If we reach capacity, there will be a waiting list.
