Alt Dot Philmont
Due to fire, many Philmont treks have been cancelled and the crew advisors contacted. In case you're still thinking of alternative adventures, or just to be aware for future treks, here's some other cool places to Scout around the country. Most of these have expressly mentioned they have room to take on cancelled Philmont trek participants. Scout On!
