Troop 99 has been approved to have two 12 person crews at Philmont during the summer of 2021. The trip is scheduled for 6/5/2021 to 6/21/2021. The estimated cost of the trip is $1565. This includes Philmont Registration, travel expenses, hotel, meals, t-shirt, National Scouting Museum tour, and a half day White Water Rafting Trip through the Rio Grand Gorge in Taos, NM. Attached is a detailed plan that includes all the information and eligibility requirements. Minimum age is 14 or 13 and completed the 8th grade by 6/8/2021. Scouts between ages 18 and 21, at the time of the trip, can participate as a youth.
Adults and Scouts interested in this trip need to fill out the attached application and return it to me no later than Monday 1/13.
John and I will select participants using the approval process that is outlined in the Trip Details document. You will be notified of acceptance before 1/20, which is when the $100/person deposit is due.
At this point the travel costs are just an estimate and could change depending on the number of people who are interested. A big reduction in the cost will happen if we can avoid renting a vehicle (approximately $85/person). This means that we need Adults that are older than 21 to signup.
There will be an information meeting during Scouts on Monday 1/6 to review the trip and answer questions. You can also give me a call anytime. My number is 501-454-6759.
Again, all interested Adults and Scouts need to submit the attached application to me by Monday 1/13.
