The St. George Trek is a biennial, high adventure, backpacking retreat program for Catholic Scouts and Venturers administered by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting in cooperation with the Boy Scouts of America’s Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, NM. The program begins and ends in Albuquerque, NM, but the hike, itself, takes place at Philmont. 

In order to apply for the 2015 Trek, candidates must compose a brief essay (about one page) explaining why they would like to participate. This essay, together with the attached form, must be returned to the Archdiocesan Scout Chaplain by October 1, 2014. 

The fee for the 2015 trek is $750 per participant, to be funded by the Archdiocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting. 
Each participant will be responsible solely for travel costs and incidental expenses. 

For more information, please view the attached application or contact Father David Friel at fatherfriel@gmail.com.
