I hate to correct the inimitable Mike Walton regarding Philmont,
where his description was 99% correct, but there were three small
Waite Phillips was not an owner/founder of Phillips 66 (his
brothers were). He did make his money in oil in Oklahoma though.
Philmont does not run a Boy Scout summer camp for the Great
Southwest Council (where it is located), they have their own camp
near Chimayo, NM. Philmont does have a program for Scout age
boys who come to the Training Center with their parents.
Philmont usually hosts one to three local council Wood Badge
training courses each summer at the Zastro Camp, the historic
Wood Badge training site (since Wood Badge 8 in 1949 or 1950).
This year the only course is hosted by Conquistador Council (and
six other councils) from August 16-23. While all Wood Badge is
by invitation, if your local council's course does not fit your
needs, you can come to the Philmont course with your local Scout
Executive's approval. Since I happen to be serving on this
year's course, I can explain more details for those who may be
interested in 1997 or 1998.
