The busy summer season at Philmont Scout Ranch has ended. Though the high-adventure base remains open year-round to host conferences and fall and winter programs, this could be considered a slow time.
That makes it the perfect time for new renovation projects at Philmont, such as the camping dining hall kitchen, seen above. And now it's possible to track the progress of those projects online.
A new Philmont Construction Projects page is regularly updated with photos and information about ongoing projects. You can see several more pictures of the dining hall renovation, scheduled to be completed in April 2011, and you can view the remodeled staff cabin at Sawmill Camp, which is expected to be ready in November of this year.
After you're done checking out the photos, learn more about all of the BSA's high-adventure bases.
