Philmont Scout Ranch is the Boy Scouts of America's largest national high-adventure base. Its more than 214 square miles of rugged northern New Mexico wilderness challenges Scouts and Venturers.
Philmont Scout Ranch provides an unforgettable adventure in sky-high backpacking country along hundreds of miles of rugged, rocky trails. Program features combine the best of the Old West - horseback riding, burro packing, gold panning, chuckwagon dinners, and interpretive history - with exciting challenges for today, such as rock climbing, burro racing, mountain biking, and .30-06 rifle shooting. It's an unbeatable recipe for fast-moving fun and the outdoors.
