I have participated in the past three International Camporees. The
next one will be in 1997 in San Diego County. You missed the one held
in Baja east of Tecate in April of this year. We had 1800 Mexican and
American Scouts and Scouters participating.
For further information, call the Desert Pacific Council office in
San Diego and ask for the telephone number of Bob Kienke. He has been
the lead person in organizing these camporees on the American side of
On a related subject, can Chris Haggerty or somebody else who knows
post some information on the upcoming 1996 Pimaree in Arizona? Some
of my Scouts appear to be interested in participating, even though
it is a long haul from the southern California coast.
