Philmont Service Corps – Fall

September 14 - September 21

Philmont Service Corps

Put Your Skills to in the Backcountry!

Join us for the second annual Philmont Service Corps Project in 2024.

The Philmont Staff Association and Philmont Scout Ranch are pleased to offer this opportunity again in the spring and fall of 2024. If you are looking for a lower impact project to work on this is the volunteer activity for you. Work in and around Ponil in the spring and Beubien in the fall, enjoy home cooked meals prepped in our backcountry kitchens, and have relaxing evenings in the backcountry after a hard day’s work.

Trip Itinerary


2024 work will focus on the maintenance in and around Ponil and Beaubien. This will include any of the following projects depending on your specific skill set; painting/staining cabins, replacing light fixtures-transition to LED, maintenance around camp/on cabin roofs, climbing gym upkeep, and climbing wall upkeep. Your work will be instrumental in making this happen.
