2022 Philmont Scout Ranch
Online Contingent Crew Application
Submit by January 22, 2021
Patriots’ Path Council has reserved 20 Philmont crews for the summer of 2022, with an estimated cost of $2,475 per person. Each crew must consist of 12 Scouts and Scouters, with a minimum of 3 adults and 9 youths, and a maximum of 4 adults and 8 youths. A unit may submit more than one application, but priority will be given to every unit’s first application before any unit’s second application is considered.
Patriots’ Path Council units, and out-of-council units that actively participate in the Watchu program, interested in participating as a group should complete and submit the Crew Application using this form no later than January 22, 2021. The Watchu crew selection process will take place on Tuesday, January 26, 2021, at 7 p.m. in a virtual meeting. The application will be considered on time and eligible for the crew selection process if all of the following criteria are met:
On January 26, 2021, at the Watchu crew selection process:
There will be a supplemental fee charged to each member of a crew that has less than 12 members. The fee will equal $50 multiplied by the number of crew members under the required 12. (Example: Each crew member’s fee would be $100 higher for a crew with only 10 members). All program fees may be paid by check, electronic check, or credit card, but a 3% fee will be added on to all credit card payments to cover the out-of-pocket cost to the council.
If the number of crews is fewer than 20 on May 1, 2021, Patriots’ Path Council reserves the right to cancel one or more contingents, and/or to reassign crews from canceled contingents to open slots in the remaining contingents. Deposits will be returned to any crew whose contingent is canceled by the council, and that crew will be given priority choice in the 2023 contingents.
