The Order of the Arrow Trail Crew program is one of the best ways to experience Scouting’s premier high adventure base, Philmont Scout Ranch. For two weeks, participants see and experience all that Philmont has to offer and much more. For the first week, participants participate in trail building in the backcountry. Work includes clearing terrain for trail and constructing erosion controls. The second week of the program is spent experiencing Philmont. Unlike regular treks, Trail Crews make their own itinerary, instead of selecting from pre-planned routes.
