By Scouting magazine

For most summers, Scouts look forward to summer camp and treks. Some venture far away from home, while others enjoy places nearby. Since this summer was a little bit different, we asked Scouters to share what their units did in summer 2019.


Worth the Wait

Scouts with Troop 421 of Arlington, Texas, planned a Philmont Scout Ranch trek for 2½ years. Devastating fires in New Mexico canceled their 2018 plans just a few days before they were scheduled to depart. They didn’t have a backup plan, so they began planning and training to go in 2019. They made it to Philmont last summer, where the crew summited Mount Phillips.
