Compare 2013 Trek 11 to 2012 Trek 9


2013 description: 'This program packed itinerary will give your crew a wonderful opportunity to experience all of Philmont’s beautiful Central and South Country. Start your trek by checking out the new climbing routes at Cimarroncito. From there, you will always remember the wind blowing through the aspens and the gorgeous meadow at Webster Parks trail camp. You will then explore Cypher’s Mine, pan for gold, and learn how to blacksmith before Charlie’s musician miners provide the evening entertainment at the “Stomp.” At Comanche Peak Camp, a sunrise unparalleled from anywhere on the ranch awaits you bright and early before tackling Mount Phillips. From the top of Phillips, views of the Moreno Valley, Wheeler Peak, and Baldy Mountain will give your crew the confidence to reach for the stars in all that you do! Enjoy learning to homestead at Crooked Creek, one of our most remote staff camps. Next, you will head to Beaubien to brand boots, test your roping skills, eat a chuck wagon dinner, ride horses, and kick back for a cowboy campfire. You will then be able to check out the B24 bomber that crashed in 1942 on top of Trail Peak. From there, you will hike to Carson Meadows to help our staff with a search and rescue mission that will encourage your crew to work together. Stop at Abreu for a cold root beer and to experience the Mexican homestead before making your way to Urraca for the night. There you will play initiative games and go through the challenge course events listening to music and some wild tales of Urraca’s haunted past. Hike down to Lovers Leap and up to the Tooth of Time before making your way into Base Camp.'

2012 description: 'Beautiful peaks, luscious valleys, and exciting program fill this Central and South Country trek. At Harlan, your crew will learn how to reload shotgun shells before practicing their marksmanship at our scenic shooting range. Breathtaking views of Black Mountain and Cimarroncito Peak await you at Deer Lake Camp. From there, the cool hike up Grouse and Sawmill Canyons will let you focus on the wildflowers and aspens instead of the heat! At Sawmill, our world class .30-06 reloading room and shooting range is guaranteed to be a highlight of your trek. At Comanche Peak Camp, an unparalleled sunrise from anywhere on the ranch awaits you bright and early before tackling Mount Phillips. From Phillips, views of the Moreno Valley, Wheeler Peak, and Baldy Mountain will make you forget all of your worries. Next, you’ll shoot black powder rifles and follow Rayado Creek all the way to Phillips Junction. Horse rides, a chuck wagon dinner, and cowboy campfire await you at Beaubien. Hike Trail Peak, then head for Carson Meadows where you will assist our highly trained staff with a search and rescue mission. Cap off your trek with geocaching, a Dutch oven dessert, and the “Rededication to Scouting” ceremony at Zastrow.'
