Troop 22 completes Philmont Cavalcade

-A A +A

Troop 22 of Los Alamos has completed the cavalcade at the Philmont high-adventure camp in Cimarron, N.M.
Eleven boys, ages 14-16 and three adults spent eight days riding horseback through the rugged mountains of northeastern New Mexico near the Valle Vidal.  
Starting at base camp, the group was often up at 5 a.m., saddling and packing horses for the day’s ride. They rode to a different camp each day, participating in activities such as challenge events, rock climbing, spar pole scaling, hiking Mount Baldy and finally, a competitive rodeo on the last day.
They also learned the nuances of horse personalities.  Additionally, many of the scouts overcame self-doubt and bravery in both the handling of horses and activities.
The trip helped them build self-confidence and learn leadership skills.
According to their troop leader, the group of older boy scouts is proficient in their camping skills, especially with regard to setting up camp, pitching tents, cooking meals and leaving no trace. The wrangler (Lucas Long) and horseman (Kelly Knight) that were assigned to the group gave guidance relative to horseback riding and preparation.  
Troop 22 of Los Alamos is the third oldest continuously registered and the first horseback mounted Boy Scout troop in the nation.
