Tecumseh Council 2021 Cavalcade Trek at Philmont

Tecumseh Council is considering a Venture Crew (co-ed) Crew Cavalcade Trek at Philmont in 2021.  Participants of Philmont Cavalcades ride horseback over some of Philmont’s most scenic trails. Designed for chartered troops or venturing crews, Cavalcade participants acquire riding and packing skills long in use in the American West. Philmont offers two eight-day, eight-night Cavalcades on each arrival date. The crew size is 10-15 participants, including leaders.

This is chance to experience Philmont without carrying all your stuff on your back.  In addition to riding the scenic foothills of the Rocky Mountains, you will learn to saddle, and care for your horse, pack and lead the pack horse and get to participate in some of the many programs Philmont has to offer. 

The current plan will be to travel by a combination of car and overnight train.  We will arrive a day early and get the chance to tour the Villa Philmonte, the Chase Ranch, the Seton Scout Museum, and possibly the Kit Carson historic village.

If you are interested in participating in a Cavalcade Trek in 2021, please sign up at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/tecumseh-council-philmont-cavalcade-trek-tickets-4190977326External Link.    This initial signup is just to gauge interest.  An informational meeting will held in late fall of 2019. A non-refundable deposit of $100 is due January 21, 2020.  The total cost including travel by combination or car and train is estimated at $1,400 for a 10-11 day trip. 

Experienced horse riding skills not required. Part of the preparation for this trek, in addition to wilderness camping, will include horsemanship skills: saddling, riding, and caring for horses.
