Annual Retreat & Service Project Teamwork
The purpose of the San Diego - Imperial Council Eagle Scout Alumni Association (ESAA) is to support and enlarge the success of the Boy Scout movement and build fellowship among adult Eagles in San Diego and Imperial Counties. The ESAA achieves this purpose, by recruiting as many adult Eagle Scouts as possible to become Scouting volunteers, by supporting activities within the Council that promote the Scouts' advancement along the Trail to Eagle and by giving recognition to the young men who earn the rank of Eagle Scout.
ESAA members came together to enhance the Mataguay experience as well as to plan for the 2016 activities. The team put up two information kiosks near the COPE course and at the Conference Center to be used to post directions and information for camp activities.
Thanks for a great event and we look forward to a great year in Scouting in 2016
