Our troop is on the waitlist. I have 16 scouts and 3 adults committed to going. We signed up for the 7 day treks since the 12 treks are just too expensive. But will can only go in June or July since all the school activities start in August. Philmont hardly has any 7 day treks in June and July. If you look at the 2018 openings, there are over 100 slots available for 12 day treks in June and July. 100 slots times 12 members times $900 equals big dollars. You would think they would open up more 7 day slots they seem to be filled all the time. Not sure what we are going to do. Sad to hear there are councils begging to fill spots and my troop wants to go in the worst way
Mr Steve replied to blw2's topic in Cub ScoutsNJCubScouter - you might find the answer to your questions here http://www.scouting.org/filestore/program_update/pdf/Cub%20Adventure%20Program%20FAQs.pdf Also, check out all the information on the program update page http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/programupdates.aspx I went to the training and feel the new program is better than the current one. More active, more doing stuff... less passive, less describe...
