Black Range Cavalcade
Don't do the traditional scout camp thing this summer, do something
new, exciting and different. Join us and escape to the Cuchillo
Mountains of the Black Range near Winston and Chloride New Mexico. This high adventure
program is for scouts 12 years old and up and is open to both male and female. Adults are
encouraged to attend. A current physical exam by a doctor (within the past 12 months) not
denying horseback riding or hiking is required for each participant. (BSA form #44122a)
The Black Range Cavalcade is a 5 day program running from Sunday
evening though Friday night. Participants may stay over until Saturday morning if desired.
The program has numerous options which include:
Horseback riding (the average Cavalcade participant
will ride about 50 miles over five days)
Cattle Roundup (if
range conditions permit)
(if range conditions permit)
Gold and Silver Mine Exploration
Visit a Ghost Town
Off Road Exploring
BSA horsemanship and Animal Science merit badges can be earned
Note: Not all options are always available
depending upon your unit and range and forest conditions.
A full session holds 24 participants so please register early. A
minimum session requires at least 12 participants. If you have less than 12 then your unit
may be added to another unit to attend.
The Black Range Cavalcade is offered May through August so scouting
units can schedule at a time that is convenient for their summer plans. Custom Cavalcades
can be set up at other times by special request to fit your unit needs.
A full 5 day Cavalcade is $350 per participant. Fees include all meals,
horses, tack, trail and program staff and licenses. All food, supplies and
equipment are provided. All you bring is your own personal gear. There is a $100 per person
