Born in 2003 in response to the fires that damaged thousands of woodland acres in Philmont’s beautiful Ponil region, PhilBreak has three major goals:
- Provide Philmont Scouters for service to Philmont
- Provide a qualified pool of potential staff members
- Enhance and build participant’s leadership skills
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?
Only one session will be offered in 2006 during the week of March 10-17 (dinner to breakfast).
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 fellowship with your fellow participants and deepen our 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.
