Camp Pico Blanco – Soberanes Fire Update 8/16/16

As the Soberanes Fire continues to spread in the Big Sur area, we wanted to share the impact it has had upon Camp Pico Blanco.  While the wildfire has affected our current summer camp program and fall events, no significant damage has occurred. Our Ranger, Rodney, and his family are safe, temporarily relocated outside of Camp.

Our goal is to ensure we continue to provide a quality program’s for Scouts in 2017.

Camp Pico Blanco will be unavailable for the near future which will impact the following programs this year; Labor Day, Dad and Lad, Mountain Man and the Shooting Sports Weekend.  If you have signed up and paid for one of the affected events, we will process refunds by September 9, 2016.

Camp Pico Blanco has survived the fire, but the surrounding area is still too hazardous to allow the use of the facility.  Regular updates are maintained on our Facebook page.  We do not anticipate on letting any youth use the property for the near future although we are accepting signups at pico@svmbc.org for adult work parties to prepare the facility for its reopening. Our dedicated volunteers will still need to do a safety check on each area. Please bear with us as we make sure we can safely operate camp.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Cal Fire for the fantastic job of saving Camp Pico Blanco from the fire. Their efforts combined with the good forest management practices of reducing ladder fuels with Scout labor over the last three years made the difference. We have our gem of a camp to come home to that is only slight charred on the edges.

Peek at the unspoiled beauty.

Have a peak experience in our program.

Pique your love of the outdoors.

Focus: As you enter Palo Colorado Road, the adventure begins as you turn back the clock to simpler times. You are “off the grid” now. Focus on your senses and listen for the river, smell the flowers, feel the breeze and cool water… Focus. Pico Blanco is not as much a place to “get away” as it is to “get in touch.” Distractions are blocked and clarity is found.


Create: Creating memories for the youth who enjoy Pico Blanco is a second focal point. While we remember the past, we are forwardly focused to help  our campers create new memories and capture those through various artistic means.


Preserve: Appreciate, learn, and practice how we coexist with the beauty of nature around us. During the summer at our organized camps, this is one of the focal points of our curriculum. Campers continue this exploration with hikes and overnight programs.


Our traditional resident summer camp program has three weekly sessions. We pride ourselves on providing staff and activities which challenge and educate all participants from the campers to the leaders. Whether you come for the first session or the last we will be your gracious hosts and help you to achieve the goals you have set with your troop.
