Sign up now – PIMAREE 2020, July 12 through 18, at Camp Lawton, only $185!
This international camping event is like no other, with Associacion de Scouts de Mexico (ASM), from Sonora, Mexico, and BSA scouts from Southern Arizona, joining together for fun and friendship since1961. New events and challenges, some of which have never been seen before, will be among the Olympic-like themed competitions. Special, historical Indian totems will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers. This is a coed event, with all youth protections.
Baden Powell believed international camping promoted understanding, peace and harmony, through shared, team/patrol bonding experiences. Pimaree has lived up to this ideal for over 50 years, providing numerous life-long friendships between our Arizona and Sonoran scouts and scouters.
