Update 12/5/18 –
Troop 20 is making two trips to Philmont in the summer of 2020!
Two crews (8 scouts, 4 adult leaders) will leave on or about 6/15/20 for a 12-day trek. They will return to Winnetka on 6/28/20 or 6/29/20.
Two crews (8 scouts, 4 adult leaders) will leave on or about 8/2 for a 7-day trek. They will return to Winnetka on 8/10/20 or 8/11/20.
While we have a total of 48 spots available, we are giving a right of first refusal to people that were signed up for the canceled 2018 treks. That ROFR extends to April 16, 2019, and their deposits are due at that time. Registration will open to other Troop members after 4/16/19 and more information will be available about that date.
Update 11/6/18 –
Troop 20 will be fielding four Philmont crews in 2020. We will break the crews down into two separate dates if possible to make the trip available to as many scouts as we can.
Philmont crews are up to eight scouts and up to four leaders per crew.
Dates for the treks will be established by lottery sometime about 12/31/18. Communications and crew formation/commitment requests will begin shortly after that.
