Learn tips and tricks for a successful trek. We’ll have mini-sessions on stoves and water purification, equipment selection, packing your pack, and more. Our two lead instructors for this event have a combined 16 trips out to Philmont and have a wealth of knowledge we want to share with you, to make your trip the best it can possibly be. There will also be great door and raffle prizes provided by our generous vendor partners.
