I did not know that Philmont exsisted until I joined Scouting. All I hear are cool stories and what people got out of it. It’s the Disneyland of Scouting. After I went to Wood Badge, I realized that I need to go to Philmont sooner than later. I have been working on my wife to go. Her main complaint is that “Scouting is not family vacation time.” She has a point.
I had to research and find out how I can get her on board to go. Family Programs! That was the ticket. It will allow her, Elliot & Rachel to take advantage of Philmont and have a great experince. The great thing is that I will have a day off from class and be able to hike with them. The great thing is that Rachel will finish her first year in Girl Scouts and Elliot will be a Webelos I that summer. He will be able to go to Summer Camp and Philmont! Rachel will learn a lot as well. And maybe be able to ride horses!
I want to go and take classes!
I am hoping to take the “Strictly for Cubmaster” class or the “Tiger Cubs to Webelos” class. There are others that look interesting as well.
Are you going to Philmont? When & what class? It would be fun if we all could meet up for the same week! I will let you know what I decide. Needing to figure out Elliot’s Summer Camp before we go. That would decide a lot.
Yours in Scouting.
