New activities for young people

Starting in the 1920's, the Boy Scouts had a camp north of the city at Salmon River. Later the Girl Guides developed a camp at Ispah Lake, south east of the city.

Other clubs for young people in the 1920's, 30's and 40's in Prince George included Canadian Girls in Training (CGIT), the Trail Rangers, and the Tuxis Boys. Most churches had youth groups as well.

During the 1940's organized hockey for boys and the Prince George Figure Skating Club, among other activities, became popular.

By the 1950's, Prince George had two Boy Scout troops. There were more than a half-dozen cub scout packs by the late 1960's. By then there were two Girl Guide troops and four Brownie packs in the area.

During the 1950's and 1960's, the 4H movement grew, providing activities for young people in the rural area surrounding the city.
