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.
