Welcome to The
San Diego-Imperial Council
Camping Pages

We are especially proud of our four Council Camps:

Mataguay Scout Ranch is nestled in the pines and oaks of our local mountains, just 50 miles northeast of downtown San Diego. Camping, activities, and a swimming pool make for a full camping program.

Camp Balboa is located behind Council headquarters in Balboa Park, just a short walk from the world famous San Diego Zoo.

Youth Aquatic Center is located on Fiesta Island in Mission Bay Aquatic Park, where you can have access to every form of water sport, including sailing, snorkeling, and board sailing. Youth camping is available there, and Sea World is nearby!

Camp Bashor is located at Otay Lakes Regional Park. The camp is a collaboration of San Diego-Imperial Council and the County of San Diego, working together to create an enhanced park facility that can be used by Scouts, community organizations and families.
