Welcome to the New Jersey Scout Museum !  

 

New Jersey Scout Museum Open House

Saturday March 12, 2016

The Board of Trustees and Operating Committee of the New Jersey Scout Museum invite you to join us on Saturday March 12 from 4:00pm – 7:00pm for this celebratory open house featuring two major new displays along with our standing collections.

One hundred years ago on Treasure Island in the Delaware River, the Order of the Arrow was founded as the honor society of the Boy Scouts of America.  Since then, tens of thousands of members have provided cheerful service in support of Scouting throughout the United States.  To celebrate the Order of the Arrow Centennial, an exhibit documenting its history in New Jersey is on display with patches and artifacts.

The NJSM is also pleased to present an exhibit that shows the evolution of present New Jersey Girl Scout Councils, their legacy Councils that preceded them and all the way back to the pre legacy ones. This display also traces the evolution of the present Girl Scout camps in the Garden State and their predecessors.  Be sure to look at the patches and postcards for your favorite camp.

This is our last open house at the MCBSA Service Center because by the end of June we will be vacating this location and relocating , don’t miss your chance to see these unique exhibits.  More exciting news to follow this winter & spring on what we call our Vision 3.0 Strategic Plan for 2016 – 2018.

Please RSVP for your family or Scouting unit to 732.862.1282.  Checkout our website for information http://www.njsm.org , visit Facebook, or call with questions 732.862.1282.
