2014 description: 'Your crew will climb mountains, shoot guns, overcome challenges, and enjoy the serene wilderness on this program packed trek in Philmont’s South, Central, and North Country. Hike over Lovers Leap and rugged Urraca Mesa where you will participate in challenge events that will help your crew work together for the duration of your trek. Enjoy the evening campfire filled with ghost stories, music, and legends of the Santa Fe Trail. Be sure to wake up early and watch the sunrise from Inspiration Point. You will then be able to visit a Mexican homestead, drink cold root beer at the cantina, and enjoy a Mexican dinner at Abreu. Enjoy camping next to the rushing Rayado. Be sure to hike over Trail Peak and check out the wreckage of a B24 bomber that crashed while on a training mission in 1942. At Beaubien, enjoy branding, eating a chuckwagon dinner, taking part in a cowboy campfire, and riding horses down beautiful Bonito Canyon. Work on a project with the Conservation Department and continue your journey over beautiful Bonito Peak and Big Red to Red Hills Camp. From there, be sure to hike to the far western side of Mt. Phillips to view Wheeler Peak, the Moreno Valley, and Baldy Mountain before continuing over Comanche Peak. At Sawmill, you'll shoot and reload .30-06 rifles at one of Philmont's state of the art shooting ranges. Enjoy the hike down Sawmill Canyon to Ute Springs before your crew reloads and fires your own shotgun shells at Harlan. Burro racing at Harlan and rock climbing & rappelling at Dean Cow will cap off an incredible Philmont expedition! Next stop... Base Camp!'

2013 description: 'This program intense trek follows rushing streams, discovers mountain meadows, and traverses lofty peaks across Philmont’s South and Central Country. You will start with a visit to pioneer Kit Carson’s home along the Santa Fe Trail. You will then hike along the gorgeous Rayado River to Rayado River Camp! You can then visit the cantina at Abreu and help our staff with a search and rescue mission that will require your crew to work together at Carson Meadows. Hike west to the “Notch,” overlooking both Rayado and Bonito Canyons. Stellar views of Rayado, Crater, and Lookout Peaks will be seen from the south side of Rayado Canyon. Enjoy Fish Camp just like Waite Phillips, as you fish the banks of the Rayado and Agua Fria Rivers. From there, your crew will spend two days in some of the most pristine country the southwest has to offer at Apache Springs. You will learn how to homestead at Crooked Creek before heading to Wild Horse, which is guaranteed to be memorable as it is one of our most beautiful trail camps. Tomahawks, mountain living, and booming .50 caliber black powder rifles await you at Clear Creek. Seeing Wheeler Peak, the Moreno Valley, and Baldy Mountain from the top of Mount Phillips will be something your crew will never forget. Head down to Beaubien for roping, boot branding, a chuck wagon dinner, and cowboy campfire. Hike Trail Peak on your way to visit the Continental Tie and Lumber Company at Crater Lake. Enjoy the campfire and rest up for your hike to Lovers Leap and the Tooth of Time!'
