Philmont Scout Ranch, the Boy Scouts of America's premier High Adventure™ base, challenges Scouts and Venturers with more than 214 square miles of rugged northern New Mexico wilderness.  More than 950,000 Scouts, Venturers, and leaders have experienced the adventure of Philmont since the first camping season in 1939.  Throughout its existence, conscientious attention to low-impact camping techniques has helped maintain the Ranch's wilderness.  Backpacking treks, horseback cavalcades, and training and service programs offer youth and adults a variety of ways to experience this legendary country.
