WHERE WILL I BE SLEEPING?
From Sunday night through Wednesday night you will sleep in a tent at the Philmont Training Center. These aren't your everyday tents. They are large, two-person canvas wall tents with concrete floors, electric lights, an electric outlet, wardrobe, and two twin-size beds with mattresses. Modern restrooms and hot showers are just steps away.

On Thursday and Friday nights, you will sleep in a canvas wall tent at Rayado Ridge Camp. These tents are a little more "rustic." They have two twin-size beds with mattresses but lack electricity and a wardrobe.

If you wish to stay on Saturday night, you will be in your tent at the Training Center.

WHAT ABOUT MEALS?
While at the Philmont Training Center, your meals will be prepared for you, and you will eat in the dining hall. While at Rayado Ridge Camp, you will be preparing and eating Philmont trail food.

WHAT IF I NEED A SPECIAL DIET?
If you have a special diet requirement, let us know as soon as possible. Philmont's isolated location limits the availability of many specialized or kosher food items. You may need to bring these items from home. Philmont's food service staff will make every effort to meet your needs but may not be able to accommodate persons following strict diets for religious or medical reasons. Please let the Course Director know of any special dietary needs on your Personal Resource Questionnaire.

ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR THE COURSE?
Yes.  You will need a completed current BSA medical form including parts A, B, C, and D. The BSA Medical Form may be downloaded here. Please make the Course Director aware of any medical conditions or accommodations needed.

WHAT WILL THE WEATHER BE LIKE?
The weather will often be cool and possibly wet. You can expect cool mornings, warm days, abundant sunshine, and cool evenings.  Be prepared for colder nights and rain, as weather can change rapidly.

WHAT GEAR DO I NEED TO BRING?
The personal equipment list for the course can be downloaded on our Resources page.

You will need to wear the full field uniform for your position in Scouting. The full uniform consists of a Scout shirt, Scout long pants or shorts, Scout belt, and Scout socks. You will also require an activity uniform consisting of the course T-shirt and Scout long pants or shorts.
