Event Details

First Friday Exhibit

Supporters of Camp Archbald (SoCA) celebrate the 100th anniversary of Camp Archbald, the second oldest Girl Scout camp in continuous operation within the United States. To showcase this anniversary, the group has put together a collection of Girl Scout and Camp Archbald memorabilia. Curated by Kate Crowley, this collection features the rich history of Girl Scouts and Camp Archbald. This collection will be showcased at the Lackawanna County Children’s Library!

Many of the pieces in this collection show that a girl’s experience at Camp Archbald, whether in 1920 or 2020, has a profound experience on the rest of her life, as it did for Jane (Butzner) Jacobs and her sister, Betty. Most of the display items are on loan from current SoCA members. The collection’s oldest item, a journal from a former camper about her adventures at camp, dates to 1930. Other items include camp guides, postcards, pictures, and mess kits.

Special exhibit hours: Opening Friday, May 7 from 5 p.m.-8 p.m., other hours during normal library hours on Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m.-7 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m.-9 p.m.

The exhibit will be available until May 26th.
