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, a new exhibit documenting its history in New Jersey will be unveiled.
Another new exhibit will feature Girl Scout camps and camping. From the Highlands to the Jersey Shore; photographs, t-shirts, camping gear, patches and artifacts will tell the story of past and current camps that were enjoyed by generations of Girl Scouts. Come and look for your favorite sites.
The NJSM currently features a series of exhibits that showcase the history of Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts in New Jersey, presenting comparisons of parallel programs such as Boy Scout Sea Scouts and Girl Scout Mariners. Also on exhibit are materials explaining the origins of the NJSM and one of our founders Dave Wolverton; and exhibits from our Ann Nally Collection showcasing her national role in Cub Scouting. These exhibits were originally unveiled as part of the grand reopening of NJSM in 2013.
