On May 8, 2018, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced that it would discontinue its chartered partnership with the Boy Scouts of America in 2020. However, many Church families still wish to continue their Scouting journey. How can these families find the information, resources, and training to be involved in or begin new Scouting units?
Come to Vision 2020, a unique opportunity for Latter-day Saint families to attend Philmont together and learn the skills necessary to continue Scouting! This exciting new Philmont course is a catalyst for increased knowledge and energy among the Scouting community and will set the groundwork for important membership development as Latter-day Saint families transfer to new units in 2020.
This inaugural week at Philmont will provide specific support, training, and information to help Latter-day Saint Scouting families find a new charter organization, start a Scouting unit, organize a committee, recruit youth, train adult and youth leaders, fund raise, develop an annual plan, and learn other skills necessary to continue Scouting with energy, increased knowledge, and optimism in 2020.
Come enjoy the trademark family events of Philmont: spouse activities, children age-groups, youth mountain trek, family hiking, western night, children’s parade, family dancing, campfires, and so much more! A memorable family vacation that will jumpstart a new Scouting legacy in 2020.
Dates: Saturday, June 15th – Saturday, June 22nd, 2019
Bring the whole family for a unique and exciting Philmont experience!
