Boy Scout Summer Resident Camp at
Camp Fiesta Island, on beautiful Mission Bay

Spend a week of Scouting adventure on the beach at Camp Fiesta Island! This Aquatic Center facility is located on beautiful Mission Bay. You'll camp among the sandy dunes and set sail for the Pacific Ocean. Campers at CFI enjoy the ultimate waterfront experience.

Scouts can kayak the bay, test their skills in the famous Flying Hull and Nautical Survival programs, or spend the day learning to surf. Meals are prepared by one of San Diego's finest caterers. Camp Fiesta Island is Southern California at its best!

Along with our very popular merit badge and first year "Mariner" programs, the CFI summer camp experience will feature exciting activities for Scouts of all ages. Pack your trunks and sun screen for a great summer camp!


Provisional Summer Camp at Camp Fiesta Island

No Troop…no problem!

Scouts who cannot attend camp with their own troop, or wish to attend for additional weeks, may attend as part of our provisional troop. The provisional troop is made up of boys from San Diego-Imperial and other councils. It is a great opportunity to meet new friends and experience summer camp in a whole new way.

The troop is supervised by full time staff whose only job is to ensure that the Scouts' week at camp is the best it can be. To join the provisional troop please complete the online registration form. All information must be completed for the registration to be processed. Omitting information will delay the registration process.
