Building Strong Troops Conference At Philmont – 2012

Dear Scouter:

We would like to invite you to attend the 2012 Building Strong Troops Conference at the Philmont Training Center in New Mexico this summer!

We are holding two conferences this summer – either June 10 – 16 or August 12 – 18.

You play a very important role in the success of Scouting in the lives of youth, and we want you to be a part of this conference.

The Philmont Training Center (PTC) has been the National Volunteer Training Center of the Boy Scouts of America since 1950.  At PTC you will have the opportunity to meet and share ideas with Scouters from across America.  The conference faculty, selected by our regions and national committees, consists of some of the most talented and skilled men and women in Scouting.

While you are involved in the conference, your spouse and family will be able to enjoy a full range of activities led by the Philmont staff.

There will also be plenty of time and activities for you to enjoy with your family. Philmont’s unique blend of Scouting, history, family activities, and the magic of the northern New Mexico mountains will make this a memorable family experience.

Who should attend Building Strong Troops?  Everyone!

All adult leaders looking for more ideas for bringing the promise of Scouting to their troop – Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, Troop Committee Members, Unit Commissioners – there is a conference just for them being offered at the Philmont Training Center this summer.

Please see the attached flyers for more information – and help us spread the word.  Forward these flyers to other great Scouters in your area who may be interested in learning more ways to improve their troops and build a stronger program for their youth.

The Building Strong Troops conference is packed full of the need-to-know and how-to tips and methods for helping adult leaders create a high functioning Boy Scout troop with a strong program.  Great troops have a planned, well communicated program, and strong, trained leadership.

This conference is designed to assist troop adult leaders guide their units into becoming great troops.
