Camping

Camping Scouts by tent

Camping is the heart of Scouting!

While camping, youth learn by doing—developing self reliance and resourcefulness, social skills, and leadership all while having fun with their friends and fellow Scouts. Most importantly, camping makes memories that will last a lifetime!

Pacific Skyline Council owns and operates 3 different camps all of which are Nationally Accredited Boy Scouts of America Camps. Each camp is run by a Program Director, staffed by adults and older youth, and offers extensive programs and activities. We offer a wide range of fun camping programs and activities for all Scouts–everything from day and weekend camps, unit and family campouts, to week-long camps and high adventure trips all designed to be age appropriate.

We own three camps: Camp Oljato, Cutter Scout Reservation, and Boulder Creek Scout Reservation
