Raise the Flag at the San Diego Fair this Summer!

Every morning before the Fair begins, we have an opening ceremony at the O'Brien (main) Gate, about a half hour before the gates open. Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts raise the flags, and local singers and instrumentalists perform the National Anthem. After that you and your troop, and parent chaperones can explore the fair, participate in the patch earning scavenger hunt and have a great day for free! 012df5f9e9b8c9ec1f02ead27af55d072df5ef3634

Daily Flag Raising

Open to all San Diego County Scout troops that have patch-earning capabilities. We raise both the American and California flags each day at Opening Ceremonies. The Fair provides admission and parking credentials so your group can enjoy the Fair the same day you raise the flag. Multiple groups may assist in each day's Flag Raising, but all groups will be a part of the ceremony. Before you start the application process:
  • Check the Fair Calendar for a date you'd like to participate.

Beach and Canyon Clean Up Dates

We’d like to invite you to save the date for the 14th Annual Creek to Bay Cleanup scheduled for Saturday, April 23rd from 9AM – 12noon.  We plan to bring out 6,000 San Diego County volunteers to beautify 100 locations throughout the region, including beaches, bays, trails, parks, and neighborhoods.  Last year, Creek to Bay volunteers removed over 180,000 pounds of litter and debris, in addition to painting, planting, and invasive plant removal projects to restore our environment. We hope you can join us for this year’s family-friendly event.  All locations will be posted online at with maps and directions, and you can register online for the site of your choice beginning April 1st.  Event information including instructions to enter our Bling Your Bucket contest, Bring Your Own Reusables campaign, scout patches, and event waivers that all volunteers must sign to participate (minors require a parent or guardian signature if under eighteen) will also be posted on the website for your reference. Stay in touch for event updates or help spread the word with social media using the Creek to Bay event page here. You can use the hashtag #Creek2Bay to share your favorite moments from the event! We are still in the process of finalizing cleanup sites, site captains, and event sponsors, so if you would like to get more involved in the event, please let me know.  We hope to see you there!

Looking for Mini-Golf Buddies

I'm looking for another troop to pair up with to meet the minimum participant requirement for Pell'y Mini Golf in Del Mar on Sat. Nov. 7th, 10am-12 noon. The course is 'ocean/water conservation themed' and ties in nicely with the 'Get Moving'Junior Journey or it can also stand alone as a fun patch activity.
2 options:
$10 per girl which includes round of golf with four (4) hands-on activities that are accomplished along the mini golf course, fun patch and lunch
$7.50 per girl without lunch
Email Shannon Donaghe at if your troop or even individual girls are interested.  Thanks!
See flyer for more info.
