I’m hearing that there is going to be a national Alumni event next summer at Philmont. Is this true? If so, where can individuals find more information about this event?
Yes, thank you for reaching out. We plan to host exactly that at the Philmont Training Center, next June 12th-18th, 2022. In addition to hearing from and exchanging best practices at the Alumni Gathering (still to be named) with all the councils who participate. We will also have breakout sessions for all the Scout Affinity Groups, like the Philmont Staff Association, NESA, Alpha Phi Omega, Life for Life, Troop Infinity, and many more. Each of the career affiliate groups will also break out for deep dives into their features and benefits to members. There will be tours of the Chase Ranch, the beautiful new BSA National Museum, and even jaunts through the back country. Overall, Councils will be well represented, as will members of the National Committee, Scout Affiliate groups, and our career-based affinity networks.
