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.

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.
