Dates of existence


On October 23, 1968, a meeting was held at the Rod and Gun Club at No. 3 and Cambie roads in Richmond, for the purpose of instituting a new camp. The camp was named the Murray Camp, in honor of Camp Organizer Alex Murray, who had been an active member of the Sons of Scotland for thirty-two years. There were eighty-seven members accepted into the Camp at the meeting. The first Chief was Alex McKelvie, and the first Chieftain was W. Kane. The camp later met at the South Arm Community Center (March 1969 to February 1975), and then the Richmond United Church hall on Cambie Road. On June 13, 1975, a special meeting was held to discuss whether or not the Camp would disband, due to its declining membership and a perceived lack of membership support for the Executive. After a vote in favour of disbanding, the Camp was dissolved.
