Philmont Scout Ranch
September 22, 2018 - September 29, 2018
REGISTRATION FOR THIS TRIP IS CLOSED
Spend a week as a part of Philmont’s Conservation Department, and assist with a new trail construction project on Cimarroncito Peak (10,475 feet). This project is full-bench trail construction with hand tools, including opportunities for rock wall construction and rigging. Volunteers will learn about multi-use trail construction in a remote, backcountry setting. Huge views of New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo mountains and its northeastern highlands abound.
A few of our original trip details have changed due to access issues caused by the Ute Park Fire. We are still working on a new trail in the vicinity of Cimarroncito Peak. We are just working on the lower end of it, near Cyphers Mine. This trail is essential to our operations in 2019. It will provide access around the burned area for crews hiking into Sawmill Camp.
This is a rare opportunity to experience Philmont’s autumn grandeur. All are welcome on this adventure in Scouting Paradise.
Please Note: All volunteers will be required to complete parts A and B of the Annual Health and Medical Record, This allows for appropriate care to be delivered by Philmont’s resident emergency responders in the event of an accident or other medical emergency. All volunteers must also complete BSA Youth Protection training through the website, https://my.scouting.org/. Volunteers should create a user a account, complete the training, and show their printed certificate upon arrival. Training is free and should take no more than a half hour to complete.
This trip will be hosted and crew led by Boy Scouts of America.
