Virtual Little Philmont 2021 provided a unique opportunity to hear from leading Scouters who continue to deliver high-quality programs for our youth. We kicked things off with a very special address from Rex Tillerson (former BSA President, U.S. Secretary of State, and CEO of Exxon/Mobil) about our duty to God. We also presented stirring and inspirational videos about the value that Scouting has in the lives of our youth.

The next day saw three separate presentations that delivered helpful information for strengthening Scouting programs.
