Philmont Training Center

 
Serving as the only national volunteer training center for the Boy Scouts of America since 1950, the Philmont Training Center (PTC) provides a unique environment for the training of volunteer and professional leaders. Each year, more than 6,000 Scouters and family members attend PTC. 
 
Each conference features the latest tools and techniques, audiovisuals, discussions, idea sharing, and activities led by a faculty of experienced Scouters. Invitation to these conferences is upon recommendation of the local council or a national committee. The 2014 Training Center course schedule is now available online. http://www.philmontscoutranch.org/PTC/ConferencesE.aspx
 
Attendance is by invitation only. A local council must make arrangements with Philmont for a Scouter to attend these courses. Let your DE know if you are interested in attending Philmont.
 
Philmont is a magical place much better than Disneyland. Why? The people! Beginning with the staff, especially the college students hired as counselors responsible for children's programs, to the trainers and other volunteers you meet from all across the nation, every one of the people associated with Philmont is top notch. The parking lot is a neat place to get a sense of where Scouters come from to attend Philmont. License plates from all over the nation will appear during the summer -- Alaska to Maine, Minnesota to Florida, California to the Carolinas you will see them all. This is one of the best family vacations possible. While you attend your training sessions during the day the Philmont staff provides a great program for your children. Other than meal times and evenings you do not have to worry about your children, the staff keeps them occupied in programs geared to their age and development. They even have grandmothers on staff to help with the infants! Now how thoughtful is that. The wives (and some husbands) also have their own schedule of activities like crafts, hiking, nature study, and they often include a trip to Taos, New Mexico where there is lots of great food and lots of shopping.
 
The training sessions at the Philmont Training Center are the best! You will have the best trainers in Scouting and they are very well prepared with lots of personal knowledge on the course material. That provides a good foundation for learning, but I also found great value in my fellow course participants. Philmont courses give you a much deeper understanding of Scouting because the course material is great, the staff is great and your fellow participants are some of the best Scouters you will ever meet.
 
Philmont is a magical place! Put a trip to the Philmont Training Center on your "to do list" of Scouting activities. Go to the Philmont web site, find a training session that interests you, get an invitation from the council, ride some wheels, fly a plane, take a train, walk if you have to - just take your family to Philmont! http://www.philmontscoutranch.org/PTC.aspx
 
 

Supplemental Training

Supplemental training modules are designed to provide orientation beyond the basic training offered in New Leader Essentials and leader-specific training. Each module is a unit of training that can be used as an outline for a group, for personal coaching, or for self-study. Most of the outlines should require about an hour to complete. Consider each unit of study to be an introduction to the subject. Scouters are welcome to download subjects that are of interest for personal or unit use. There are no training credits associated with the completion of these units of study. Additional training units are being developed and will be continually added to this site.
