Provisional Summer Camp at Mataguay Scout Ranch

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 youth 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.

Arriving at Camp

The check in process for provisional campers is the same as for other Scouts. The camp opens at 2:00 PM each Sunday. Arrival at 6:00 AM Monday morning is also available. Upon your arrival the camp staff will greet parents and Scouts, and assist with unloading gear and transporting it to the campsite. The Provisional Scoutmaster will take charge of the youth and guide them through the check-in process, which will include a medical screening and a swimming test. Camp ends after breakfast Saturday 9:00 AM, or you may come Friday at 5 PM to eat dinner with your Scout and watch the closing campfire. Purchase dinner tickets at the Trading Post, bring your tent and spend Friday night!


Provisional campers are housed in 2-person tents in the camp's provisional campsite. The Provisional Scoutmasters have their own tent and keep a close watch over the youth. Campers will be housed in the standard canvas platform tents with cots.

Provisional Camp Cost

Cost per Scout per week is $410 SDIC Scouts/$440 Non-SDIC Scouts and includes a camp t-shirt.
