Troop 147 Goes To Philmont- 2015
Organized by: Julie Gaumer Geho
EVENT DATE Aug 01, 2015
Boy Scout Troop 147 is from Azle, Texas, and is planning a trip to Philmont in the Summer of 2015. A Philmont trip means a 10 day backpacking trek through the back country and mountains. These young men will learn to rely on themselves and each other. They will bond during this process and will come home with lasting friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
However, this is an expensive undertaking. We have to make sure each Scout has all the necessary gear to backpack in the wilderness and mountains for 10 days. We have a couple sets of brothers and the cost is double for those families. We also have some boys in need of camperships to make this trip possible because without the generosity of others, they would never get to make this trek.
