2018 Council Philmont Contingent

Scouts and Scouters looking for an adventure of a lifetime need look no further.  More than 1 million Scouts, Venturers, and leaders have experienced the adventure of Philmont since the first camping season in 1939. Throughout its existence, conscientious attention to low-impact camping techniques has helped maintain the Ranch's wilderness.

The area surrounding the Ranch is rich with history, from the Native Americans who made this arid land their home to the land barons of the 19th century. The town of Cimarron boasts a number of historical buildings.

The French Creek Council is organizing a Council Contingent to Philmont for the Summer of 2018.  Our adventure begins a few days prior to our arrival at Philmont.  The expedition at Philmont starts on June 25, 2018 right after lunch.  The estimated cost is $2000 per person and a deposit of $100 secures your spot on this adventure.  Space is limited so get your deposit in as soon as possible.  For more information on this adventure, please contact Michael Cidor at 814-868-5571 or by email at or contingent leader Greg Hartzell at 814-797-2866 or by email at
