Patriots’ Path Council Travel Policy

Travel arrangements for all participants in Patriot’s Path Council sponsored High Adventure activities requiring group travel will be made by Patriots’ Path Council.  Everyone is expected to travel with the group.  Exceptions for individual special arrangements will only be considered and approved by the High Adventure Committee Chairman and the Assistant Scout Executive in unique circumstances and for compelling reasons.  The alternate arrangements must be made by others.  There will be no adjustment of the activity’s fee for any portion of the program that is not utilized.  In the case of disabled members, Patriots’ Path Council will make special arrangements when necessary.


Each Philmont trek is a physically demanding backpacking hike at high altitude and in a hot and dry environment. The goal of the Watchu Experience is to give you the information you need to prepare yourself and your crew so you can meet and enjoy that challenge.
