Brand-new in 2020 is Philmont’s Backcountry Sneak Peak program. Designed for those who are 13 or older, accompanied by an adult, the program gives you a taste of what a backcountry trek is like. Hiking trips will be held throughout the week and will get longer and more challenging as time goes on. At the end of the week, participants will spend a night in the backcountry. During the week, participants will learn about various Philmont practices, such as hanging bear bags, using a gas stove, setting up a dining fly and more. Participants will also have the opportunity to enjoy other adventures before or after their day hikes. Some of the choices include touring the National Scouting Museum, visiting the shooting range or the craft center and more. LEARN MORE
