Scouting: History in the Making

Created in partnership with the 40th Canadian Baden-Powell Guild (Tri-Cities), the Port Moody Station Museum is proud to present Scouting: History in the Making. The display highlights the changes in the scouting movement over the past century.

Rope Making

Scouting was first established in Port Moody and much of North America in the 1920s. Since this time the movement has changed greatly. While the emphasis on community service remains a central part of the movement, how this service takes shape looks much different. Even staple activities like camping have been altered with the consideration of environmentalism. This interactive display illustrates these changes and what the scouting movement looked like then and now.

The display includes special program days for visitors to participate in scouting activities, both old and new. Wendy Williams, Guild Master of the 40th said, “We wanted the display to be engaging, keeping the OUT in scouting. So we included weekends and evenings of programs that show, hands-on how scouting has changed with the times.”

The display opens at the Museum November 24th with special pioneering activities for opening weekend.  Additional weekend and evening activities will take place for the duration of the display. For more details, check out our Upcoming Events page. Like scouting, the programs go on rain or shine. The display ends on March 10th, 2013.
