High Adventure

Philmont’s signature program is the High-Adventure Expedition. Available each summer from early June to late August, each 12-day expedition provides opportunities for participants to:

  • – Explore the high country in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of northern New Mexico.
  • – Experience the thrill of climbing mountains over two miles high.
  • – Participate in a wide array of activities that teach Scouting skills—archaeology, climbing, fishing, forestry, horsemanship, Indian lore, and much more.
  • – Develop leadership, group dynamics, wilderness problem-solving, and outdoor skills.
The Baltimore Area Council sends a contingent to Philmont each summer, typically in early July.  Council Contingent crew slots are available by application on a first-come, first-served basis. Units can request multiple crew slots in the Council contingent. Applications are accepted in February of the year prior to your Philmont trek by emailing
