Born in 1938 as Philturn Rockymountain Scoutcamp, today's Philmont Scout Ranch is a bustling center for high adventure and training. Youth and adults take advantage of the Ranch's camping, training and work programs. Most activity takes place during the summer, but Philmont also offers Autumn Adventure and Winter Adventure programs.

Troop 99 participates in Philmont Expedition Treks as often as possible. The last three trips were in 2013, 2016, and 2019.

The Troop is currently training for a possible Trek in July 2021.
