The "Philmont Advisor's Guide" is an unofficial publication developed and supported with input from experienced advisors, Philmont Rangers, and staff for over twenty years. Originally begun by NCAC scouters Coop Wright and Wally Feurtado, it is updated continually throughout each year, in response to changes in Philmont best practices, policies and procedures. This 90+ page guide has proven invaluable to legions of scouters for more than fifteen years, yet remains fresh, timely, and insightful. The guide is a compilation of input from a network of advisors and staffers, which is what makes it unique. That network also includes experienced female advisors, rangers and ranger trainers, which adds an important perspective for the growing Venturing population at Philmont - and gives women the option of contacting peers "off-line" through contact info in the guide for questions. This guide is written to include best practices for all who trek at Philmont. We will continue to reference campers’ use of both old and new, traditional and ultra-lite products and philosophies with the belief that has been the foundation of the Philmont Advisor’s Guide: There is no one “right way” to do Philmont.
