Guidelines for Capitol Area Council Contingent Participation:

Application and selection criteria is in the application package and is available on this website.  Everyone should understand that the goal set for the Capitol Area Council Philmont Contingent is to make the Philmont experience available to as many different youth members as possible.  Everyone should also understand that, regardless of the number of crew slots allocated to the Council Contingent, we will have significantly more demand and cannot satisfy everyone.  Our objective is to make the selection as open and fair as possible.
