    Headed back this summer. This will be my sixth PTC trip with the family. One of my wife's favorite stories is about the deer trying to get in the tent to drink my daughters bottle. I have also been on trek with my eldest son, but if you have never been to Philmont and are looking for a family trip, this beats Disney.

    If there is a scouter in your District or unit who has given a lot of service but can't afford to go to PTC, get the money together and send them as well as giving them a little pocket change. They will be forever grateful and your heart will be full for helping to make it happen. Our District has done it twice.

    One of the best experiences I ever did. While training my son went on the week long experience in the wilderness and had a great time. Worth the time and effort to go whenever possible.
