A tour group must have its Tour Plan in its possession at all times and must display it when requested by Scout officials or other authorized persons. All reservations by a tour group for overnight group camping on council properties and military bases will be subject to the presentation of a Tour Plan on arrival. Philmont requires a Tour Plan be presented at registration.

Groups are encouraged to secure the signatures of these authorized persons on the front of the Tour Plan as indications of satisfactory experiences at various stopping points.
