Camping in the Jungle Online Exhibit
One of the PCMC interns, Lauren O’Neill, created an online exhibit based on a past physical exhibit titled Camping in the Jungle: Scouting Stories from the Panama Canal Zone. This exhibit delves into how scouting in the Panama Canal Zone was both similar to and different from the scouting experience in the United States mainland. Camping in the Jungle was made possible by contributions from PCMC members who shared their experiences and objects with us. We hope that this online version of the exhibit will be useful and enjoyable to all.
See the exhibit here: http://exhibits.uflib.ufl.edu/scouting/.
Camping in the Jungle: Scouting Stories from the Panama Canal Zone was curated by Sarah Marek with assistance from Jessica Marcetti and Lourdes Santamaría-Wheeler.

Any idea the year of this photo? Looks like a Brownie meeting to me.
If it’s Balboa, the Girl Scout House, meeting place, was the residence of…
the U of Missouri(?) horticulturalist who designed what we called the
Orchid Garden (stroll up the hill a bit from Balboa Elementary School), and
the path led to the house, and continuing on, one would arrive at Balboa
Heights (I believe near the Quarry Heights Base (military main ) gate.
Balboa Elementary was next to the jungle; Gamboa downtown was next to the
jungle. I don’t think this photo has anything to co with ‘camping in the jungle.’
is this a mirror image? Are the letters and numbers on the flag supposed to be reversed? find out the answers to these and other questions on the next episode of soap.
NEVER MIND! I should’ve looked closer. They are saluting with the right hand, not the sinister one.
