General Announcements

Silver Beaver Nominations

The Silver Beaveris awarded to registered members of BSA for distinguished service to young people both in Scouting and within the community at large. Nominations accepted now thru 5:00 PM on 30 November. View past recipients from Palomar Mountain District.

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.

Upcoming Events

San Pasqual Battlefield State Historic Park "Battle Day"

The San Pasqual Battlefield State Historic Park Volunteers and Park officials will be putting on their annual "Battle Day", Sunday, 3 December from 11 AM to 3 PM. This is a great family activity featuring numerous living history presentations which will also enable Scouts (Cubs/Webelos/Boy) the opportunity to learn more about their community and earn one of the dwindling, (and highly collectible) San Pasqual Battlefield/Kit Carson District patches.

When these patches have all been claimed, the new patch, in addition to changing the District's name, will also display a less combative image, in accordance with current BSA guidance.

The State Park is also looking for a Troop of Scouts to aid visitors park their vehicles. Scouts would be expected to represent their units in full uniform, and will be provided lunch, at no cost to them. If interested, contact Ranger Chris Lozano or Jody Hansen.

Escondido Jaycees Christmas Parade

The Escondido Jaycees Christmas Parade will be held on 9 December. Applications are due by 15 November.

Community Forum

The Community Forum is a mechanism for the public and Scouting communities within the Palomar Mountain District to share ideas to expand Scouting into the public community and civic activities into the Scouting community. Latest news.

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.
