"The Philmont Advisor's Guide"
is an unofficial publication developed and supported with input from experienced advisors and Philmont Rangers for over 20 years. Originally begun by NCAC scouters Coop Wright and Wally Feurtado, it is updated continually throughout each year, in response to changes in Philmont best practices, policies and protocols. There is also a once-annual "overhaul" at the completion of the prior camping season, which is available each September.
This 90+ page guide has proven invaluable to legions of scouters for more than twenty years, yet remains fresh, timely, and insightful. The guide is a compilation of input from a network of advisors and staffers, which is what makes it unique. That network also includes experienced female advisors, rangers and ranger trainers, which adds an important perspective for the growing Venturing population at Philmont - and gives women the option of contacting peers "off-line" through contact info in the guide for questions.
This guide is written to include best practices for all who trek at Philmont. We will continue to reference campers’ use of both old and new, traditional and ultra-lite products and philosophies, with the belief that has been the foundation of the Philmont Advisor’s Guide: There is no one “right way” to do Philmont.
