Scouts BSA 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!
