The Priesthood Leadership Conference convenes under the direction of the Young Men General Presidency and the General Scouting Committee of the Church. The faculty, selected from the Young Men General Board and Primary General Presidency and Board, provides training in the program and administration of Scouting as a supporting activity of the Aaronic Priesthood and Primary.

Registration The stake president is welcome to copy the packet of information and distribute throughout the stake. Individuals are also welcome to download the information from this website as well. Anyone may register for Philmont; however, it depends on the applicant’s current Church leadership position whether he is accepted immediately or placed on a waiting list.

Accepted Positions
PHILMONT PARTICIPATION POLICY: The LDS Scouting Leadership Conference at Philmont is for STAKE and DISTRICT PRESIDENCY members and their families. Due to the high demand to attend the conference, only stake presidency members will be immediately accepted.  Stake and district young men presidents or high councilors with Scouting responsibilities may submit an application but they will be placed on a waiting list until February 1, 2014.   All other applications will be placed on a waiting list until April 1st.

When openings occur, wait list applicants will be contacted by the LDS-BSA Relationships office.

In addition, Philmont is a family experience as well as a marvelous training opportunity. Each priesthood leader is encouraged to bring his wife and family to Philmont.

Stake Representation A stake may be represented by more than one individual. All six positions listed above may attend at the same time. However, an individual may attend only once every three years, giving others an opportunity to attend.

While the priesthood attend conference sessions, wives and children participate in programs that include tours, crafts, hikes, or just relaxing. Full-day activities with leaders are provided for each group.
