Philmont Contingent

Sequoyah Council, Boy Scouts of America

Calendar

Philmont is 137,493 acres of challenging Scout adventure set among the mountains and mesas of northeastern New Mexico. It was the gift of Waite Phillips, who “donated and dedicated (it) to the Boy Scouts of America for the purpose of perpetuating faith, self-reliance, integrity, freedom and principles used to build this great country by the American Pioneer.”

 

Philmont’s mountain terrain ranges in elevation from 6,600 feet at Headquarters to 12,441 feet at the top of Baldy Mountain. Summer daytime temperatures often reach into the 90’s, but nights cool to the 40’s. Wildlife is abundant on Philmont’s forested mountains and grassy plains. Deer, elk, mountain lion, bear, bobcat, buffalo, and antelope are frequently spotted by observant campers on the ranch. Philmont is a working cattle ranch with over 250 head of Hereford cows grazing its pastures. For summer packing and riding, 100 burros and 300 saddle horses are also maintained.
