Philmont Scout Ranch is the Boy Scouts of America’s largest national High Adventure Base. It covers approximately 140,000 acres - about 218 square miles - of rugged mountain
wilderness in the Sangre de Cristo (Blood of Christ) range of the Rocky Mountains in northern New Mexico.



We have reserved one council contingent crew of 12. Participation is on a first come-first served basis. Scouts and leaders that wish to register after the first 12 slots are filled must complete the waiting list located in the menu above.

If we have enough additional scouts and leaders interested we will ask for an additional crew, but there is no guarantee that we will receive it. Currently, we are limiting participation in the council contingent to a maximum of 4 Scouts/Scouters from any one unit. If slots are available after April 1, 2017, this limitation will be waived. Units with 7 or more Scouts and leaders wanting to participate in a trek should plan on attending Philmont as a unit rather than as part of the council contingent.


A youth must be 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and completed the 8th grade by date of participation to register for the 2018 Philmont Contingent.


Each participant in a backcountry Philmont trek must not exceed the maximum acceptable limit in the weight-for-height chart below. The right column shows the maximum acceptable weight for a person's height in order to participate in a Philmont trek. Those who fall within the limits are more likely to have an enjoyable trek and avoid incurring health risks. Every Philmont trek involves hiking with a 35 to 50-pound backpack at elevations of 6,500 to 12,500 feet. Philmont recommends that participants carry a pack weighing no more than 25% to 30% of their body weight.
