Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico is the site of several premier scout leader training courses every year. Two weeks out of every summer (two sessions, one week each), the Church holds Priesthood Leadership Training at Philmont Scout Ranch, where the General Young Men Presidency and General Primary Presidency train Stake Presidencies in using Scouting in conjunction with the priesthood. Those Stake Presidencies are then encouraged to take what they learn back to their stakes and hold a "Little Philmont" - a one or two day conference about how Scouting fits with the Church and the priesthood. This is done under the direction of the Young Men General Presidency. In fact, I have heard there is often a member of the Young Men General Presidency, as well as members of the Board at the Little Philmont. 


Stake Presidencies, Stake High Councilors over Young Men and Primary, Stake Young Men Presidencies, Ward Young Men Presidencies, Bishoprics, Branch Presidencies, Scout Leaders, Varsity Leaders, Venture Leaders, Stake Primary Presidency, Ward Primary Presidency, Cub Scout Leaders, Scout Committee Chair and Members, Cub Scout Committee Chair and Members, Council and District Professional staff.


Training sessions for all leadership involved in Scouting and Cub Scouting programs to integrate the Scouting Program with Faith in God and Duty to God, to share examples of successful programs and activities, and to share innovative ideas to run successful Scouting programs.
