Boy Scouts Spring Camporee in Seneca Falls
On April 26th, the Seneca Museum of Waterways & Industry was visited by over one hundred and twenty boy scouts from the Seneca Waterways Council Mohawk District 2014 Spring Camporee hosted by BSA Troup 88 of Seneca Falls, during their Spring Camporee event.
Numerous regional troops were represented by their respective scouts and den leaders, many of whom engaged in a contest imbedded in one of our new window exhibits entitled “Made in the U. S. A.-Made in Seneca Falls”. This “What Is This?” contest requires the participant to get a worksheet on which a description of each item is listed and they have to match the item number with its description. Many young scouts aced the test and received a Goulds Pumps poster; those not making the grade did receive a consolation prize.
