Scouts BSA Summer Resident Camp at
Camp Fiesta Island, on beautiful Mission Bay

Spend a week of Scouting adventure on the beach! 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 motorboat and stand-up paddle board.

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

Try Survivor CFI Style!

Our Nautical Survival program combines the best of Scouting's outdoor tactics. Start with the popular Wilderness Survival merit badge, toss in a simulated "shipwreck", add lifesaving skills, and build your own raft to escape the island!

Open Program Day!

The Open Program Day gives Scouts a break from the regular class schedule with opportunities to experience the open activities at the waterfront, craft area, and several 1/2 day additional merit badges. There is also the opportunity to get off the island and visit local San Diego attractions such as the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, USS Midway, or go on a chartered deep sea fishing boat excursion, and more!

Extend Your Stay in San Diego?

Extend your adventure with our new "Camp San Diego" option! Pitch your tents at our 15-acre Camp Balboa, next door to the world famous San Diego Zoo. You can add days before or after your Fiesta Island week to enjoy the Zoo, Sea World, a Padres game at Petco Park, the USS Midway aircraft carrier and more!

If your troop is interested in this additional program, please contact our camping department ASAP (phone and email below).
