Martin Koca did not give precise figures on the cost, including transportation, as it depends on how the troop gets to Philmont, either by train or air.  The choice is the Councilís.  He thought something in the range of $1200 - $1300 for train and $1500 - $1600 for air though there may be an increase in the Philmont charges.  More information on Philmont can be obtained at
