The SDIC 2016 International Camporee will be a unique weekend event with participants from the US, Mexico and other countries. The International Camporee will provide a venue and opportunity for Scouts from all over to meet each other and share their customs, traditions and scouting experiences.

All participants must be registered as members of a World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) Scouting program (eg. BSA, Asociatión de Scouts de México, Scouts Canada, Scouts Australia, etc.). All youth participants must be registered as youth in their respective scouting organizations. The leader of each contingent must be at least 21 years old and assistant contingent leaders must be at least 18 years old. All USA adult leaders attending the camporee must be registered with the BSA and have a current BSA Youth Protection Training certificate.

Activities likely at the Camporee will include swimming, rowing, canoeing, fishing, Scoutcrafts, nature, archery, rifle shooting, Scout games, challenge activities, and theme activities related to California and Camp Mataguay history. International guests will have opportunities to share songs, games and Scouting activities from their own countries. There will be no rank or merit badge work planned for this Camporee.

TROOPS ARE ASKED TO PROVIDE A COMPETITION AND/OR GAME EVENT (INCLUDING MANPOWER AND MATERIALS)

All contingents must provide their own transportation to and from the International Camporee. Each unit should bring its own camping equipment. Scout units from outside the USA may request that we provide tents and cooking gear for their use at the International Camporee, if equipment is available. Requests will be handled and confirmed on a case-by-case basis.

If you are interested in competing in Shooting Sports, you may choose either Archery or Rifle. The first 400 paid registrants in Archery will shoot. The first 500 paid registrants in Rifle will shoot. Only one shooting sport per person, please. Any additional slots available will be assigned on a first come, first served basis based on registration date.
