From Those Who Have Been There: This course has changed the way that I approach my personal, business and scouting life. Thank you for that gift. The truth is, it is hard to find words to adequately express my experience. The course far exceeded my expectations. I truly left Philmont with the desire to be a servant leader. PLC exceeded my expectations and more importantly, I left Philmont with lots of new friends, a bag full of resources, and a deep desire of wanting more!!! As for home, church, and Scouting... I believe I got my batteries re-charged and see life a bit more differently than before. I find it more important than ever to be more of a life partner with my wife, a contributing member of my church, and a Scouter who is needed in my District.
