NOTE: Crew selection meeting changed to Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2020, at 7 p.m.
in the council service center, 1 Saddle Road, Cedar Knolls
Patriots’ Path Council has reserved 20 Philmont crews for the summer of 2021, with an estimated cost of $2,400 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 Jan. 24, 2020. The Watchu crew selection process will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2020, at 7 p.m. in the council service center, 1 Saddle Road, Cedar Knolls.
The application will be considered on time and eligible for the crew selection process if all of the following criteria are met:
On Jan. 29, 2020, 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 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, 2020, 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 2022 contingents.
