, and ROCS are work-for-trek programs; fees are reduced or waived in return for service to the ranch.
While these fees are very reasonable, there are many other factors to consider, such as training and promotion, travelling to Philmont, side trips and tours, and other costs that may be incurred. The budget worksheet should be helpful in planning for these expenses.
If you have young people who need financial assistance to attend Philmont, check with your local Scout service center about the availability of scholarship money. Regional offices usually make allocations in January to the local councils.
