Philmont Council Contingents

Philmont Provided Equipment

This equipment will be provided by Philmont for each crew at no additional charge.  On Day 1 in Camping HQ, your crew's Philmont Ranger will take you to Services where your crew will check the equipment out.  On your return to Camping HQ on Day 12 you will check the equipment back in.  Your crew will be financially responsible for any loss or damage to the Philmont equipment.

NOTE:  comments are those of the Contingent Advisor.

nylon dining fly 12'x12', weight about 4 pounds -- may want to bring a stuff sack for this & for the stakes used to erect it

2

collapsible poles for dining fly, weight about 1 pound -- may want to bring a stuff sack for these, if not, bring rubber bands to keep them together.

1

BSA Philmont backpacker nylon tent with poles (per each 2 persons), weight about 5-1/2 pounds -- crews may bring their own tents (no bivy sacks) but be aware of luggage space limitations on the busses as well as limited space in Philmont campsites.  It is strongly recommended that crews use Philmont tents and assign two people to each tent.  If, due to Youth Protection rules, you have participants who are not allowed to share a tent, they should bring a lightweight one or two-person tent rather than carrying the full weight of a Philmont tent.
