Have you always wanted to go to Philmont Scout Ranch? The Council Contingent we offer is a great opportunity

What is a council contingent?

A contingent is a large group made up of youth and adults from multiple troops and crews throughout the council. A contingent also prepares for the extensive trip together and travels as a group to New Mexico! Units that don't have enough interest to form their own crew or did not get space in the Philmont lottery will often take advantage of a council contingent.

When is the 2023 Contingent?

Our 2023 high adventure contingent will be at Philmont Scout Ranch from June 24, 2023 – July 6, 2023 (including travel). The cost for 2023 is not yet determined. For reference, the cost for 2022 was $2,025 per person and included Philmont fees, travel, food, possible field trips and a contingent shirt.

How do I get more information?

Our council has 45 youth and 15 adult spots available for a total of 5 crews in the 2023 contingent to Philmont Scout Ranch!
