The Saint George Trek is The National Catholic Committee on Scouting’s® high adventure Catholic leadership program for older Catholic Boy Scouts and Venture Crew members at Philmont Scout Ranch. The program brings Catholic high school youth from around the country together with selected priests, religious and seminarians for eleven days of backpacking in the context of a vocation retreat.  If you will be 15 on or before 7/1/17 and no older than 18 you can apply by clicking on the emblem above.  2 candidates can attend from each diocese.  The trek cost is covered but the scout is responsible for travel.
