Knox Trail Council Contingent
High Adventure Expedition
Cimarron, New Mexico
August 2-16, 2014
Get prepared for a backpacking
adventure that will be the highlight of your Scouting
career. We’ll be hiking at least 50 miles along rugged,
rocky trails in the mountains of New Mexico. Along the
way, we will participate in programs that combine the best
of the old West—horseback riding, burro packing, gold
panning, chuck wagon dinners, and interpretive history—with
exciting challenges for today—rock climbing, burro racing,
mountain biking, and rifle shooting—in an unbeatable recipe
for fast-moving, outdoor fun. It is truly a wonderful
experience and something that won't ever be forgotten.
We anticipate the
all-inclusive fee to be about $2500. This includes crew
equipment, supplies, training treks, transportation to and
from New Mexico, Philmont fees, and custom T-shirts.
Partial scholarships may be available.
