2017 description: 'This program filled trek will enable your crew to hike the Tooth of Time and visit some of the most pristine camps in Philmont’s Central and South Country! You will be able to orient your crew's Scouting focus under the stars at Zastrow’s Rededication to Scouting program. Start by trekking over Lovers Leap and hiking to Miners Park for rock climbing and rappelling. Next, side hike the Tooth of Time from Schaefers Pass. At Clarks Fork, test your roping skills, eat a chuckwagon dinner, enjoy a cowboy campfire, and ride horses the following morning. Hike by Window Rock before meeting the Conservation Department for a trail construction project in scenic Hidden Valley. Reload and fire .30-06 rifles at Sawmill before climbing up to Thunder Ridge for the night. Be rewarded with views of Wheeler Peak and Baldy Mountain from on top of Mt. Phillips! Mountain men, tomahawks, and booming .50 caliber muzzle loading rifles await you at Clear Creek. Enjoy the hike down the Rayado and learn to homestead at Crooked Creek. From there, enjoy fly tying, fishing, and a tour of the historic lodge at Fish Camp. The hike down Rayado Canyon will reveal views of the surrounding peaks, and your crew will help the Carson Meadows staff with a search and rescue mission. Cap off your trek with geocaching and dutch oven desserts at Zastrow, before touring Kit Carson's home at Rayado. Next stop… Base Camp!'

2016 description: 'This action packed itinerary will encourage your crew to work together as you explore Philmont’s South and Central Country. Start off by trekking over Lovers Leap before heading to Urraca Mesa for initiative games and challenge events that will encourage your crew to work together throughout the trek. Be sure to wake up early to see the sunrise from Inspiration Point and be amazed as first light hits the Tooth of Time. From there, visit a Mexican homestead at Abreu and help the staff at Carson Meadows with a search and rescue mission. Hike west to the Notch and enjoy the overlook of Rayado and Bonito Canyons. Stellar views of Rayado, Crater, and Lookout Peaks will then be seen from the south side of the canyon as you continue onwards. Enjoy Fish Camp just like Waite Phillips, as you fish the banks of the Rayado and Agua Fria Rivers. Spend two days hiking through some of the most pristine country the southwest has to offer while you camp at Agua Fria, work on a trail project with the Conservation Department near Buck Creek, and camp at Crooked Creek. From there, mountain men, booming .50 caliber black powder rifles, and tomahawks await you at Clear Creek. Next, the trek up Mount Phillips will be challenging, but seeing the sunset over Wheeler Peak and the Moreno Valley will be an unparalleled reward. Hike over Comanche Peak on your way to Sawmill where your crew will then enjoy learning how to reload .30-06 rifle rounds before shooting them at our state of the art firing range. Enjoy the cool hike down Sawmill Canyon where your crew will rest for the evening at Ute Springs. From there, enjoy hiking through Hidden Valley and by Window Rock before visiting the Demonstration Forest. Horse rides, a delicious chuckwagon dinner, and cowboy campfire will help your crew have a wonderful night as you prepare for the final leg of your journey… The Tooth of Time!'
