Philmont Scout Ranch offers a program known as the Mountain Men and Mountatin
Women for young people such as your son. The program takes youth whose
parents are attending conferences at PTC, provides them with leadership from
the Philmont Ranger Department, and sets them off to see a week of the
Philmont backcountry and meet new friends form all over the States.
I want to add my recommendations for this program. Our oldest son has now
been on this trip twice, at ages 14 & 16. Last year he climbed Baldy, learned
about mining at French Henry, did Mountain men activities, helped with a
conservation project, attended campfires and made several new friends that he
is still communicating with. He would go back every year if we'd let him. He
even dreams of being on staff. If you are going to the Philmont Training
Center, take your children. It is the best vacation ever.
