Day 2 at Philmont Training Center

Got things underway for our first full day at camp. So kids met their staff at 8:30 and the adults got their orientation at 8:45.

Trailblazers (11–13 year old boys)

 

They give you plenty of time to eat your meals and the food is pretty good, with a decent selection.

The Training is taught by experienced people with experienced Scouters and the kids stay really engaged and really enjoyed it.

Had a chance to see the Philmont Museum and Seton Memorial Library, which is pretty neat and is across the street from the Camping Center and a short walk from the Training Center. They plan a significant expansion to the museum, once the necessary funds are raised.

Speaking of museums, I also visited Villa Philmonte, which is the house built by the benefactor of Philmont, Waite and Genevieve Phillips.  Pretty impressive, as it is 28,000 sq.ft. in size and very well preserved in its original state.

Ended the day with some patch trading along with many flavors of Dutch Oven cobbler and ice cream.
