Joint Scripps-Mesa/Black Mountain District Camporee

Registration for our combined Black Mountain and Scripps-Mesa Camporee is now OPEN. Click here to access the Doubleknot registration site.

As you have probably heard by now, the Scripps-Mesa and Black Mountain districts will be merging as of July 1 as part of the council-wide re-districting process. But even before that, we will be having a joint Camporee April 30 to May 1 at Camp Fiesta Island.

We have a capacity for 120 Scouts and expect this event to fill quickly. Please register as soon as possible.

Planning is well underway on the program for the camporee under the direction of Mike Ellison. Please contact Mike for more information. As details are finalized they will be provided for sharing with youth and adults.
