In the fall of 2016 three Little Philmont conferences were held, two at Tifie Camp near Mount Pleasant and one at Marion D. Hanks Camp at Quail Creek in Hurricane. The discussion topics were directed at the older boy program. Stake presidents who attended were invited to bring their bishops, counselor in the stake presidency and stake Young Men’s president. Area Seventies, stake presidents and scout executives presented the material. In this same pattern, additional Little Philmonts are being planned for 2017. The first of these is scheduled to take place March 24-25, 2017 at Marion D. Hanks camp with the same objective of exploring ways to improve our older boy program. For stake presidents who would like to improve the effectiveness of their older boy programs, this conference will be helpful. Attendance is optional.
