A History of Scouting @ Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame
July to November 2018
Officially, the Canadian General Council of the Boy Scouts was incorporated by an Act of Parliament on June 12, 1914. The Boy scouts were popular in their early days, viewed by many as a counter point to industrialization which was believed to have “feminized” men. The focus on outdoor life provided boys with opportunities to emulate activities normally reserved for older men, such as hunting and shooting. The first chartered scouts group in Coquitlam was the Coquitlam 1st, founded in 1947. Join us for this exciting look at the history of scouting in Canada and Coquitlam at the Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame.
