2014 Philmont Excursion Announcement – 3 December 2013

2014 Philmont Contingent Welcome Letter

Parents & Leaders,

We at GNYC are happy to announce a new opportunity for your Scouts- a chance to join our revitalized Philmont Contingent for 2014! Each year, a select group of Scouts and Leaders are invited to join the Council Contingent excursion to Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico. This year, we’re opening up registration to all first class Boy Scouts, age 14 or older. We’re also doubling our Contingent to 20 youth and 4 adults, so there’s never been a better chance to send your Scout on this transformative journey! The journey begins with a flight to New Mexico on July 30, 2014, and ends with a return flight on August 12, 2014.

Trail Maintainer Workshop

Saturday, March 24, 2012
10:00AM to 2:00PM

Are you interested in the outdoors?

Would you like to learn how to restore and maintain trails, but don’t know where to start? Staten Island Parks and NY/NJ Trail Conference have volunteer opportunities available.

Join us for an orientation session to discover the many ways in which you can give back to the open space you enjoy so much!

No previous experience is necessary and beginners are welcome. Volunteers will spend the morning in a classroom environment and then head out on to the trail for hands-on instruction.

RSVP: draper@nynjtc.org, with “Orientation” in the subject line, or call 718-667-2165 ext. 311, or http://www.nynjtc.org/view/workshops
