Lake Skinner Recreational Area is located in the rolling hills of Winchester, just a few short miles from Temecula.  Click here for their website. Lake Skinner will be closed to the public for this event.  Below are some other details you need to know:
  • Bathrooms – Portable toilets will be used for this event as the facility bathrooms will not be able to accommodate us.
  • Fires – Although the facility allows for campfires, we do not.  So no open fires will be allowed.  Each campsite must have a visible fire extinguisher near the cooking area and must have buckets of water and a blanket or gunnysack for fire fighting.  In case of fire, soak the blankets quickly and use them for smothering the flames.
  • Map – Click here for a map of the overall layout for this event.
  • Showers – Three shower trailers each with 16-shower stalls will be placed in the camping areas as the facility showers will not be able to accommodate us.  These will be available at no additional charge.
  • Splash Pad Area – Lake Skinner has a free splash area that will be open at the Camporee.   Anyone using the area will need to be in proper swim attire, no street clothes.  Swim attire can be worn in the splash pad area only; not in the other event areas.
    • Males – modest swim trunks
    • Females – one piece swimsuit or tankini ( a tankini is a two-piece swimsuit with a top and swim bottoms); top must cover midsection and bottoms must be full coverage; boy/board shorts are acceptable.
  • Trash – Although there are trash dumpsters available, you will need to bring trash bags and/or cans to gather your trash then throw in the dumpsters.  We also ask that you separate any CA redemption recyclable bottles, cans, etc. and put in the dumpster marked for recycling.
The club and campsite inspection needs to be scheduled with your county coordinator.  A final ‘clean up’ campsite inspection will be done Sunday morning before leaving.
A designated parking area for all vehicles will be near the campsites.  We do recommend wagons or something to transport items to your campsite.
For liability reasons SECC Youth Ministries has a not pets allowed policy.  Please leave  your pets at home.
