Fun with Family at Camp Balboa, located in in the heart of San Diego at our Council office offers numerous fun and exciting activities for people of all ages. Archery and BB gun are great for everybody. Enjoy swimming in our beautiful pool, shooting water rockets, GPS, or just taking a hike through Balboa Park. Don't forget to stop by the craft and game areas. Listen to the animals across the wire at the zoo. It's an urban camping experience and highly recommended for novice campers.
Like most national, state, or private campgrounds, you will be sleeping in your own tents. ALL sites are assigned when you arrive at camp and grouped by unit. Restrooms are available near each campsite.
Don't like going camping and dealing with the mess of cooking on a stove, relax, we do the cooking for you. All your meals on Saturday are included, and Sunday brunch is available at a minimal fee.
Camp opens at 5 pm on Friday for check in, please do not arrive earlier as we will not begin check-in until 4 pm. Please do not go to a campsite and set up prior to check in, you may be asked to move as some sites have been assigned for large groups. Please have your medical forms signed and ready at check-in.
Who's Eligible: The families of anyone registered in the Boy Scouts of America may participate. You can bring along friends too but they must only be camping when you are.
Sorry but no pets.
