Our crew has four open slots for any Scout in the Northern or Central
New Jersey area who would like to experience Philmont and America. Our
Troop organizes Crews every two years to drive across America to
Philmont in New Mexico. We stop off at other Boy Scout Camps and Air
Force bases along the way.
We take five days to go out and stop for a half day white water rafting
trip in Colorado. Other sites to see are St. Louis, the Indianapolis
Speedway, Garden of the Gods and Scouting Museum in Kentucky.
The whole trip is about three week and is a perfect opportunity to see
parts of the country some of us have never seen before. We leave on
June 26,2000 and return the evening of July 16, 2000.
We have the minimum required by Philmont to make a crew but would like
to invite anyone who couldn't get on their council's contingent crews.
The cost of the trip is $1000.00. We even have slots for adults
available if you have a Scout that would like to have someone familiar
Please e-mail me directly.
