Each season, Philmont employs more than 1,000 staff members to operate and support Philmont's program, Training Center, food service, maintenance, and ranching museums, and to assist the administrative staff. A wide variety of paid positions are available, including rangers, backcountry program counselors, and Training Center and base camp support staff.
The majority of contracts coincide with the summer season, from late May through mid-August, though some temporary positions are available at other times to support the spring, fall, and winter programs. All staff members, no matter what their job is or where they work, have a very important role to play in the total success of Philmont.
