CFI Day Trekker Program (Local Day Camp for Summer Opportunity)

Posted on May 13 2021 - 1:12am

Camp Fiesta Island, in Mission Bay, has opened up sign ups for their Day Trekker Program this Summer!

This is a great opportunity for new and old scouts!  You have the ability to take any of the merit badges offered at CFI this summer, but it is a Day Camp. This means that Scouts will arrive at Camp around 8 am and leave around 4pm Monday through Friday. This is a really good option for anyone who may be uncomfortable with or not have time to attend a full week Summer Camp.
