Uniforms and Supplies

The Palomar Mountain District has a Uniform and Equipment Exchange. For sale, at a nominal fee, are gently used uniforms and working equipment. Items to be added to our inventory are always welcomed. Drop off those uniforms that your son, or Venturing daughter, no longer wear. Maybe you have some working camping equipment just taking up space in your garage; we'll gladly take it off your hands so that you can make room for some new, cool stuff. Contact Brad Baker at his office (Baker Orthodontics - 760.743.2295) to inquire about needed items, or for drop off information.

San Pasqual Battlefield Patch

The Palomar Mountain District and the San Pasqual Battlefield State Historic Park have collaborated to offer Scouts of all ages the opportunity to earn a very unique and historic patch. Simply visit the State Historic Park, watch an informative historic video, answer a few questions, take a brief hike and submit an application (and small fee) to one of the volunteers at the visitor's center and the collectable patch is yours. NOTE: There is a limited supply of the current patch design remaining, so it is destined to become even more collectable. Get yours while supplies last. Once they are gone, they will be replaced by an entirely new patch design. Learn more.
