When’s the last time you were at Philmont?  If it wasn’t last year, it’s been too long!  Every Cub Scout, Boy Scout and/or Venturing leader is welcome to join the Longhorn Council and learn world-class leadership skills in the most beautiful setting of all – the Philmont Backcountry.  This Longhorn Council course is one of only a very few ways you will get to participate in any backcountry events this year.  We will learn for three days at Rayado Ridge followed by three days at Zastrow.  Where else can you see some of the best of Philmont at a great price, especially this year?  
We have less than (10) spots left in this course, so please get your application in quickly.  We need your commitment by August 17, 2018. **Camperships are available for earlier registration.
Every youth deserves a trained leader.  Our staff has completed their course development and is prepared to lead you in a Mountain Top Wood Badge Experience.  This leader-development program will help you not only in Scouting, but also at home and at work.  Come away from the course with valuable new skills, great resources, and new friends!
