Philmont
We needs scouts to sign up.  We can take up to 24 (two crews).  That means 18-20 scouts and 4-6 adults.  Our next trip will not be until 2018 most probably.  To go in 2015, you must have completed the 8th grade by June of 2015.  If we want to hold two crews when we sign up, we must have 4 adults and 10 scouts.  Philmont will want a $100.00 non refundable deposit at that time.  It is transferable though.   I have not received notice as to when they want this $1400.00, but I assume it will be February/March 2014 time frame.  They will want the rest of the fee ($750.00)  in chunks of $375.00 in the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015.

July 2015
European Trip
Troop will be going to Europe in late July 2015.  Scouts will have to make a decision if they want to go to Philmont or Europe.  We can consider scouts from outside of the Troop if we know them.
