About The Sicamous Society

The SS Sicamous Society was founded to preserve the SS Sicamous, and prevent it from slated closure. Later the society began acquiring other vessels and structures that were in danger of disappearing. Today the Society works to preserve and communicate this unique chapter in Okanagan and Canadian History.

In Kind Donations

There are many ways to support the SS Sicamous Society; from becoming a member, to volunteering at the front desk, or even bringing your family for a tour of the ship. Here are some of the ways that you can support and protect your local heritage:

Artifact Donations – Here at the SS Sicamous, we are particularly interested in objects that have a direct link with the ships and tug boats of Okanagan Lake. We are also interested in items that would have been used or transported on board (any items that were made or used prior to the last run of the ship in 1936). The collections of the SS Sicamous are officially cared for by the Penticton Museum and Archives. They ask that prospective donors bring items directly to the Penticton Museum for appraisal. However, if you are unsure of an item, or have any questions, the staff at the SS Sicamous would be happy to help you with the process.

Volunteering – Volunteers are very welcome. For more information please click here

Membership – Show your support and become a member of the SS Sicamous Society. Membership dues go straight towards the restoration of the ships, with lots of other benefits too. For more information on becoming a member please click here.
