Boy Scout ranch focuses on wildfire recovery as season nears ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The clock is ticking as the Philmont Scout Ranch scrambles to install new campsites ahead of a summer season that will see a record number of Boy Scouts from across the U.S. descend upon the mountain retreat. The historic New Mexico ranch is rebuilding following a devastating wildfire that charred nearly 44 square miles (113 square kilometres) last summer. Dozens of miles of trails were wiped out along with trail camps, leaving behind a scar that will take years and millions of dollars to restore. Ranch managers say the work is necessary, pointing to Philmont as a crown jewel of the scouting experience.
