National Gathering of Alumni
June 12-18, 2022 | Philmont Scout Ranch
Sponsored by the BSA Alumni Association, this week-long gathering at PTC is intended to bring Scouting Alumni back to the campfire, and to rekindle that Scouting Spirit which lies within everyone who has ever been positively and personally impacted by Scouting. The gathering is designed to help participants build or rebuild their connections to Scouting, foster connections with other Scouting Alumni, and focus on becoming a compelling ambassador for Scouting. This course is not intended to be an academic conference, but rather a social exchange of proven strategies and best practices that participants can take back to help initiate, expand or improve alumni relations efforts in their own council.
