Tahquitz Summer Camp

Summer Camp Registration is Open! 

Reminder- summer camp registration is currently open with “early bird” pricing.

As of 2/17/21, New York and Virginia governors have committed to opening overnight camps for the 2021 season. The belief is California will soon follow with the same message. Since we are uncertain of any limitations which may be imposed; the sooner a troop registers the better. To aide in our new online registration system we have uploaded two “How-to” documents walking through the troop registration and the parent portal. Check these out at the blue buttons below.

Summer Camp Early Bird Pricing Extended until May 15!

Summer camp preparations are in full swing. Despite the fact we do not have definitive guidelines from the state and/or county, we are moving forward with planning summer camp assuming Troops will remain as a “cohort” and enjoy merit badge opportunities and programing together. Understanding the hesitancy registering by our normal “early bird” timeline (12/31), we have extended this pricing until 5/15/21 for all Troops.

To ensure all scouts have ample time to enjoy everything the camp offers, we have determined our that central feeding at the commissary under post COVID guidelines will take too much time from everyone’s day. Therefore, this summer we will only be offering patrol feeding at the campsites.

We look forward to offering our great camp to everyone again this summer!

***As stated in our updated cancellation policy; full refunds will be offered if camp is cancelled due to outside circumstances.
