The Capitol Area Council is coordinating a contingent of 16 crews with 12 members each to Philmont Scout Ranch, New Mexico in the summer of 2007.  Half these crews will depart Austin June 21, 2007 and half July 3, 2007.

This web site is designed for these crews, their members, and other interested parties to share information about the trek.

Philmont 2007 Council Contingent:

Philmont has rescinded its change to the the First Aid training requirement for 2007.  As in previous years, 2007 crews will be required to have one participant in each crew currently certified in Red Cross Standard First Aid (or equivalent) and one participant in each crew be currently certified in CPR. 

Philmont had planned to change the requirement from Standard to Wilderness First Aid but the American Red Cross was unable to provide enough courses nationwide to fulfill the needs.  The Wilderness First Aid course is strongly recommended because it does a significantly better job of preparing you for the backcountry, wilderness environment of your Philmont Trek.  Because Wilderness First aid is a superset of Standard First Aid, being certified in it more than fulfills Philmont's requirement.  Information on the Wilderness First Aid course being taught this fall by the Capitol Area Council may be found by clicking the button below:

This website is an ongoing project.  Look at it often for updated information!  As we get closer to the actual trek dates, changes will occur more frequently.
