Has anyone on the list taken the Advanced Boy Scout Leader Camping
Skills conference at Philmont Training Center? The description for the
course states that it is held in the back-country, and that participants
do not have the opportunity to be with their families during the week.
How much hiking does this require? Is the course given some distance from
PTC? Are you away from PTC's tent city the entire week, or just for a few
days? How worthwhile is this course? Does someone have an outline of
previous year's advanced camping skills courses? Has anyone taken the
basic skills course, and what is your opinion of this course?
Any information would be sincerely appreciated!
Thanking you all in advance,
