Announcing the 2022 National Jewish Philmont Treks 

What is a Jewish trek?

Our treks include Shabbat observance, kosher food, daily prayer and on-going Jewish learning.

As part of this unique experience, participants will grow physically, mentally and emotionally and most importantly, participants will experience a deeper insight into what it means to be a Jewish Scout, all with rabbinical participation and supervision.
