COVID-19 Policy

Philmont Scout Ranch (Affiliation Required)


Considering the global pandemic associated with COVID-19, everyone shares in the obligation to observe certain requirements and guidelines to help keep themselves and others safe within your shared community. The Philmont Scout Ranch requires that all guests 12 years and older be vaccinated for COVID-19 or show proof of a negative test between 3 and 7 days before arrival.  Philmont does not do on-site testing. In addition, all guest 6 years and older must wear masks both indoors and outdoors while on property. All special COVID-19 procedures will be posted onsite at the camp and will be communicated by the Camp Director and Camp Staff.

To minimize risk, each guest in the reservation must agree to the following:

  1. I represent that I have not tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days.
  2. I have not been in direct personal contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days. 
  3. If I do test positive for COVID-19 or come into contact with someone who has, or if my temperature exceeds 100 degrees Fahrenheit and I experience other COVID-19-related symptoms, I agree that I will not seek to enter Philmont until I am no longer symptomatic for 14 days.
  4. I agree to observe the safety requirements within the shared camping spaces -- including wearing a personal mask when required, and observing required routes of circulation, occupancy limitations, social distancing, and sanitization requirements.
