2021 Virtual Little Philmont

While the in-person Vanguard Vision Conference for Latter-day Saint Scouters at Philmont Scout Ranch has been postponed until 2022, hundreds of Scouters joined our 2021 Virtual Little Philmont event and had a taste of the Philmont experience.

Virtual Little Philmont 2021 provided a unique opportunity to hear from leading Scouters who continue to deliver high-quality programs for our youth. This exciting event can be a catalyst for increased knowledge and energy within the Latter-day Saint Scouting community.

We opened the event on Friday evening (May 21st) with Rex Tillerson as our special fireside guest. As the former BSA President and former U.S. Secretary of State, Rex had an inspiring message for all the significance of religion in Scouting.
