Philmont Training Center

Each summer, the Philmont Training Center (PTC) offers weeklong courses that cover every aspect of the BSA's program—from Tiger Cubs and Scoutmasters to Endowment and Scoutreach.  CLICK HERE for the 2011 Philmont Training Center Summer Schedule.

Conferences are led by a faculty of outstanding volunteer and professional Scouters selected by the divisions and committees of the National Council for their expertise in specific conference topics.

The conferences are designed to discuss specific Scouting issues, share information from all over the BSA, and train using "best methods" that will enhance the Scouting program for our youth and adults. Each conference features the latest tools and techniques, audiovisuals, discussions, idea sharing, and activities.

Best of all – the entire family is invited! Family programs are already planned for your spouse, age-appropriate activities are lined up for your children, and there is free time for the entire family to spend together. Turn your visit to Philmont into a family vacation!
