Patriots’ Path Council has reserved 20 Philmont crews for next summer. Each crew must consist of 12 Scouts and Scouters, with a minimum of 3 adults, 9 youths and a maximum of 4 adults and 8 youth.  A unit may submit more than one crew application, but if more than 20 crew applications are received, the additional crews will be placed on the waiting list in the order received.

Patriots’ Path Council units interested in participating as a group should complete a Patriots’ Path 2021 Philmont Crew Application (see link below) and submit the completed application online no later than January 24, 2020.  The Watchu crew selection process will take place on January 28, 2020 at 7:00 pm in the council office.

Selected crews will participate in the Watchu program – an 18 month long program designed to train and guide advisors on preparing for Philmont. Questions and inquiries can be addressed to Chief Watchu at [email protected]
