Summer Camp at Camp Fiesta Island

Are you currently signed up for a summer camp? If not, and you’re looking for a week filled with fun in the sun in beautiful Southern California, sign up for Camp Fiesta Island. There are lots and lots of exciting merit badges and activities such as dragon boating, nautical survival, and you can’t forget flying hull! But what if you’re not interested in aquatics? There are tons of non aquatic merit badges such as Citizenship in the Nation, Community and World, Emergency Preparedness and much more. If any of this caught your eye then Camp Fiesta Island is the place for you. Come and enjoy one of the finest summer camps on the West Coast! Space is limited, so sign up by Monday.
