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.
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.
