Philmont Training Center

The Philmont Training Center (PTC) is the national volunteer training center for the Boy Scouts of America. Each year, more than 6,000 Scouters and family members attend PTC.

Each conference features the latest tools and techniques, audiovisuals, discussions, idea sharing, and activities led by a faculty of experienced Scouters. All registered Scouters are invited to attend training center courses; council approval is no longer required.
