Last summer at PTC, we were told that Philmont was going to require that
each crew have a Chaplain's Assistant - not necessarily the troop's CA,
but one of the crew who agrees to undertake that responsibility for the
trek. The Chaplains hold a special training session for CAs before the
crews start out. They found that none of the crews with CAs fell
apart. (When a crew "falls apart", the Philmont Chaplains go out to
help resolve the group dynamics problems.)
