This March you will have the opportunity to spend part of your Spring Break in the backcountry of Philmont Scout Ranch. Philbreak gives you the chance to meet Scouters and Venturers from around the country and learn all about the various staff positions that would leave you with an entire summer’s worth of Philmont memories.

If you are a registered Scouter between the ages of 18 but not yet 26, is there a better place to spend your Spring Break than Cimarron, New Mexico?

Two sessions will be offered in 2009, running from dinner Monday to breakfast Friday:

  • March 9-13
  • March 16-20

The cost is $100.00 and includes all on-site meals and accommodations. Participants are required to be registered with the BSA in their local council and be between the ages of 18 and 26. Arriving PhilBreakers can catch a shuttle from Albuquerque to Philmont on either that Friday or Saturday. More details in the application.

At Philbreak, you will work alongside other talented Scouters who are making positive changes for the future. Your goal will be to do meaningful service projects for the Ranch and build your understanding of conservation and the outdoors. By taking advantage of the facilities at the Philmont Training Center for sleeping accommodations, you can focus our efforts on service, building leadership skills, and gaining invaluable forestry and conservation knowledge.

When you arrive at the Ranch, you will be greeted by a highly trained staff and immediately immersed in the spirit and program that Philmont has prepared. By day you will give service, by night you will enjoy fellowship with other participants and deepen your understanding of our surroundings. When you leave, you will be tired but fulfilled by this unforgettable week-long adventure.

Come to Philbreak when Philmont’s peaks are still snow-capped and witness the Ranch like it can’t be seen during a summer trek. This opportunity is limited to small number of participants you need to apply as soon as possible.
