camping in the backpack area under no trace, to camping in one of our
12 cabins. also Phillippo is only 3.5 miles from the very popular
Cannon trail which lots of Troops use to fulfill the Biking and Hiking
We are also close to the Cannon River which Troops use
for canoeing Phillippo has 7 miles of hiking trails and our backpack area is used by
lots of troops preparing for Philmont. We have three big open fields,
the Polar Cub field, the upper level field, and the athletic fields.
They're often used by districts for Camporees, OA events, or a place for troops and packs to launch rockets.
Phillippo offers a lot of opportunities for troops, packs, and
Crews to do while they are here from using one of our many ranges,
which include two archery ranges well stocked, two action archery
ranges, one walk through 3d field range for Troops and Ventures, one BB
Gun Range, one Rifle/Muzzle loader/BB range, and the Shotgun Range, we
also have two Gaga ball rings, a bouldering wall that is enclosed so it
can be used most weekends, a 34f foot climbing tower, a GPS course,
along with orienteering courses, in the winter we have lots of
snowshoes available and after Polar Cubs troops can use the lighted
tubing hill. While you're here we recommend you visit Friendship Point
to admire the views.
