Health and Medical Record
Philmont Scout Ranch is located at 6,600 ft. elevation. Humidity is low, so visitors should drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. Persons who feel that they may be overweight, out of shape, or who have health concerns should consult a physician before coming to Philmont. Some activities are strenuous, and families should discuss abilities before arriving for the program. All individuals who participate will need to provide a health history.
Dining halls and classrooms are wheelchair accessible, as are several tent platforms and roofed housing units. Please notify Philmont in advance during the reservation process or email us at PhilmontTrainingCenter@scouting.org if you require a wheelchair-accessible housing or tenting unit. Due to limited resources, you must provide your own wheelchair. Unfortunately, wheelchair transportation is not available.
Under no circumstances will any individual over 295 lbs. be allowed to participate in backcountry programs, regardless of height or age. This limit is necessary due to limitations of rescue equipment and the safety of Philmont personnel. Philmont’s chief medical officer and other medical staff of the Philmont Infirmary reserve the right to make medical decisions regarding the participation of individuals at Philmont.
Special Dietary Needs
The dining hall has the capability to provide meals that meet various special dietary needs throughout your stay at Philmont, including but not limited to vegetarian, vegan, religious diets, food allergies (gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, etc.), and many more. You will be able to indicate during the reservation process any special dietary needs for your family members. Please be sure to indicate this as soon as possible. In addition, please note any special diet needs on your medical forms and identify yourself with dining hall management upon arrival and they will be happy to assist and review ingredients in the different items and review items that are available to you. Sometimes it is best for people with severe allergies or very strict diets to bring their own supplemental food to be stored in the dining hall (a walk-in cooler is provided for this purpose). If you have questions about a special dietary need e-mail Philmonttrainingcenter@Scouting.org well ahead of your arrival date. Due to wildlife and scavenging animals, absolutely no food is to be stored in or around either the rustic or luxury tents. All food must be stored in the dining hall, vehicles, or other lockable storage away from the tent camping area.
Each participant’s medical form (both youth and adult) will be reviewed by a member of the Medical Staff. In this review, they will briefly look over the health form and identify any medical issues of concern and discuss those concerns with either the adult leader or that participant themselves. Note: Medical staff may place restrictions on the activities a participant may partake in if a medical condition warrants it.
The following sections lay out the Boy Scouts of America’s policies on Tobacco, Alcohol, and drugs. These policies are meant to be taken very seriously. Violation of these policies may result in dismissal from camp, membership revocation, and/or police action.
Adults should support the attitude that they, as well as youth, are better off without tobacco in any form and may not allow the use of tobacco products at any BSA activity involving youth participants. This includes the use of electronic cigarettes, personal vaporizers, or electronic nicotine delivery systems that simulate tobacco smoking.
All Scouting functions, meetings, and activities should be conducted on a smoke-free basis, with smoking areas located away from all participants. Use of all tobacco products (including E-cigarettes and chewing tobacco) must be done out of sight of all youth participants in designated areas within camp. Contact Philmont if you have any questions about where these areas are.
BSA Family Adventure Camp is conducted on a smoke-free basis, with smoking areas located away from all participants. Use of all tobacco products (including E-cigarettes and chewing tobacco) must be done out of sight of all youth participants in designated areas within camp. Contact the camp Commissioner if you have any questions about where these areas are.
It is the policy of the Boy Scouts of America that the use of alcoholic beverages and controlled substances is not permitted at BSA Family Adventure Camp or at any activity involving participation of youth members.
Illegal drugs, including the misuse of prescription drugs have absolutely no place at any Scouting function. The misuse of drugs happens in all levels of our society. We may be confronted with the problem at any time; therefore, we need to understand the misuse of drugs and what can be done about the situation. See the Drug Enforcement Administration website (www.dea.gov/) for detailed information on controlled substances and their effects.
It is unacceptable for anyone to use or be under the influence of medical marijuana at or during any Scouting activity.
Wifi is available throughout base camp at Philmont. Campers are encouraged to appropriately document and share their experiences during their stay! The site offers full wireless and cell phone connectivity.
