July 2019 Philmont Trek

posted Aug 14, 2019, 5:24 AM by Scouts BSA Troop41sg

Troop 41 and Troop 34 ventured together to Philmont, BSA’s premier High Adventure™ base in the rugged northern New Mexico wilderness. The Troops embarked on two different Treks for the 2-week hiking, camping, and high-adventure experience.  Scouts and leaders trained for over a year beforehand, taking regular hikes with full backpack gear and backpack camping through the terrain of Isle Royale in Lake Superior last summer.  All the Scouts and leaders returned from Philmont with some great stories!
