On July 5, 2018 Philmont announced the closure of the Philmont backcountry for the entire summer season for 2018, due to the Ute Park and Morris Creek fires. For the first time in its history, Philmont was forced to cancel all of its summer programs and treks. Troop 355 has secured two Philmont treks for 2019, and intends to get treks for 2020 as well, so our 2018 crews will have the chance to complete their Philmont treks.
