When: October 10-15
This is the 5th year that the Philmont Staff Association is offering an Autumn Adventure trek for PSA members, their family and friends. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to participate this year. Crew members will provide input on where they would like to visit, whether that is a camp you worked at one summer, or a memorable spot you hiked through or even some place you never made it to, but always wanted. You can hike for days without seeing anyone outside of your crew. At first glance the ranch seems closed for the season, but the magic of the place never ceases. We will have free range of the ranch and can go wherever we want to, but since all the camps will have gathered the only program will be hiking, sightseeing and fellowship.
Autumn Adventure is open to crews of six to 12 participants accompanied by an Autumn Adventure guide. Know some friends you would like to share the Philmont experience with? Form your own crew and create your custom itinerary. Don’t know anyone you can get to come with you? Sign up and you will be put in a crew of other PSA members. All participants must be registered members of the BSA (but not necessarily the PSA).
The fee for Autumn Adventure is $250 per person, which includes all trail food and a staff guide. This year the PSA treks will be held October 10-15. Sign up early so that crews can be formed and itineraries planned. For your planning purposes it is helpful to know that you will hit the trail the day you arrive and can leave the day you come off the trail, but many spend the night and enjoy some off-trail fellowship over dinner. Once you register a physical form will have to be completed and brought with you.
