About the museum

The Stambaugh Scout Museum was created at Camp Stambaugh in 2009 as part of the Greater Western Council. Bill Moss has been the curator since its opening and provided its first collection. 

Many donations to the Museum from Scouters over the years have filled the Museum with items from the beginning of Scouting and of all the various Scouting programs. Visit the museum to see over 17,000 items including over 6,ooo patches. The items on display rotate regularly. 

Camp Stambaugh opened in July 1919. thanks to a gift from the estate of prominent local industrialist Henry H. Stambaugh (1858-1919).

What you can see at the museum

Both Cub Packs and Scout Troops are encouraged to come out to the Museum and have their short meeting there and tour the Museum. Scouts BSA can work on building a Commando Rope, which they get to keep - it's free. Cub Scouts can build an Indian Bone Game, which they get to keep - it's free. 

Your scouts can participate in History Hunts to find answers to questions about Scouting which can be run as a competition between Dens and or Patrols. These History Hunts can also be a part of planned District or Council activities.

There also is a Store in the Museum where you can get FREE things and even buy some of the historical things from Scouting's past. 

View some of the displays, visit and have these items come to life.
