Camp Tahquitz 2022

Event Details

For over 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America have provided the premier camping and outdoor program for the youth of our country, and for almost a century Camp Tahquitz has provided one of the finest camping experiences in the Western Region.

The Long Beach Area Council is fortunate to own a square mile of land in the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains. Since opening in 1959, Camp Tahquitz has served thousands of boys from the greater Long Beach area and surrounding councils by making available the finest possible camping experience in an incomparable setting.

Prudent planning has resulted in a camp whose developed areas are balanced by large sections left in their natural state, to be appreciated by Scouts of today and for years to come. In addition to the usual camp buildings, ranges, pool and lake, facilities include a number of secluded outpost camps, a wide-ranging orienteering course, a COPE course, and four historic log cabins that have been preserved and adapted for use as program centers.

Camp Tahquitz lies on Highway 38 just 26 miles beyond Redlands, about a two-hour drive from Long Beach. The camp road is paved from the highway to the central camp (a short distance). At 6,500 feet elevation, the camp offers clean air and an agreeable climate amid thick forests of giant ponderosas and rolling, green meadows. Its location offers many spectacular views of the mountains above and the valley below as well as an abundant variety of birds and other wildlife. The program is varied, offering a wide range of outdoor activities - archery, rifles, shotgun, horsemanship, craft lodge, outdoor skills, rappelling, hiking and nature studies, to name a few of the exciting opportunities during your week at camp. Our location on the edge of the San Gorgonio Wilderness Area also offers many opportunities for challenging hikes through the magnificent backcountry.

One of the greatest assets at Camp Tahquitz is the staff. Most of our staff members are members of the Tribe of Tahquitz who volunteer to work at summer camp because of their dedication to scouting and their desire to help other Scouts learn. All staff members are chosen for their outstanding qualities and abilities. They have been planning and training for their jobs since December. Most of the Area Directors are graduates of National Camping School and all but a few staff members are Life or Eagle Scouts. The staff's only goal is to serve the troops at camp and to help them have the best possible summer camp experience.
