Philmont 2020 & Summer Camp 2019


Thank you to all who participated in our Philmont information meeting last week. Philmont is without a doubt the pinnacle scouting experience and I encourage any eligible scouts (14 years old, 1st Class by June 1, 2020) to consider attending. There will be a maximum of 12 participants on our crew departing in June of 2020 and we will fill the crew on a first come, first served basis.

In order for us to have our crew participate, I will need to have a minimum of seven (7) scouts and/or adults pay the $200 deposit no later than 1/29/19. If you know you are planning to attend, please bring your deposit to the Troop meeting tomorrow. If you have questions about Philmont, please let me know.

For the summer of 2019, the Troop is going to attend summer camp at beautiful Camp Raymond near Flagstaff, Arizona. Camp will run this year from Sunday, June 23 – Saturday, June 29 and the total cost of camp is only $375 for the week. There will be a wide range of Merit Badge opportunities and other programs, as well as a brand new high adventure program for older scouts.

Please let me know if you plan to participate in Summer Camp this year, and pay a $100 deposit by 2/12/19. I will follow up with more specific logistical information about camp, along with the full payment schedule and merit badge programs over the course of the next couple weeks.

Thanks! – Mr. Benyi
