2023 psa homecoming

50 years of fellowship

Celebrating 50 Years of the Philmont Staff Association

Come back HOmE this summer!  All PSA members and their families are invited to join in the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Philmont Staff Association.  Reconnect with old friends and make new ones as you spend a week in the high country.  Introduce the special people in your life to the land and the people that are Philmont.  

Our schedule includes exciting activities for all ages and abilities.  There will be opportunities to hike the backcountry, nightly music from current and former staff, speaker forums to learn more about how Philmont has changed and the important ways it has stayed the same in the years since you worked here, arts & crafts fair, opportunities for service to the ranch, and book signings as well as all the regular PTC programming including horseback riding, museum tours, shooting, archery, chuckwagon dinner, and much more.  The fabulous Maverick rodeo & Cimarron parade will be featured activities on the 4th of July.  Child care will be provided so that adults can choose to participate in programs while kids have fun with others their age.

Whether you worked at the ranch last summer or when the PSA was formed in 1973, we’ve got a tent reserved for you!  Let’s all gather together at Philmont this summer and celebrate.
