The Largest BSA Zone in San Diego Imperial Council!
Welcome to Palomar….
Change is always inevitable and as changes occur, we are there for you. This website is powered by Scouts and is for Scouts and Scouters. Stay focused and healthy and keep an eye out for updated information! As you visit each tab, there is a wealth of information available for Scouts and Scouters. Information that is being updated routinely, stay informed, visit often. The Palomar Zone routinely send outs information via Mailchimp. If you have not been receiving information from Mailchimp and want to be added to the mailing list, please email the Zone Commissioner.
