Camp Ti-Wa-Ya-Ee 1946 Pocket Patch

by @ 10:38 am. Filed under pre-1960 NYS Camps

According to Mike Hulsizer’s Camp Ti-Wa-Ya-Ee History,

The camp became the property of the Erie County Council (ECC) in 1928. However, records suggest it likely operated as Camp Ti-Wa-Ya-Ee beginning in 1925. Camp Ti-Wa-Ya-Ee is a Seneca Indian word meaning “trustworthy-loyal”. At that time it was probably used by the BSA but open to other boys. The camp was located on 470 acres in the Three Valley Nature Reserve among the Holland Hills -3 miles south of Holland, NY. It became exclusive to the ECC in 1928. The camp had a kitchen, dining and recreation areas houses in the “Long House.” Below was a three acre gem of a lake, created by a 300-foot dam. On the shores was “Buccaneers Roost,” where one could find the craft shops and the shelters for boats and canoes

Here is a scan of their 1946 pocket patch.

Camp Read 1950’s Pocket Patch Washington Irving Council

by @ 10:27 am. Filed under pre-1960 NYS Camps

Curtis S. Read Memorial Scout Camp opened on the shores of Long Pond, near Lake Mahopac in Putnam County, in 1920. The camp’s capacity was 50 boys, and was supervised by S.P. Hines, the local Scout Executive. Camp Read would later move to Camp Waubeeka in Copake, NY, and Siwanoy in Wingdale, NY, before finding a permanent home in the Adirondacks in 1949. A Girl Scout camp Known as Rock Hill Camp opened in its place later on.

Still open under the current Westchester Putnam Council, pictured below is a pocket patch issued by then Washington Irving Council.

Camp Schoellkopf 1948 Pocket Patch

by @ 10:19 am. Filed under pre-1960 NYS Camps

Here is another recent acquisition from Western New York Traders Association TOR a couple of weeks ago was one of their local camp patches.

According to Mike Hulsizer’s Camp Schoellkopf History page,

The camp came into existence in 1938 and was originally owned by Buffalo Council (BC). In 1949, Erie County Council (ECC) merged with Buffalo Council and the camp became part of the Buffalo Area Council (BAC). The camp was still being used as a summer camp when the Buffalo Area Council merged in 1967 with the Niagara Frontier Council (NFC). The Greater Niagara Frontier Council (GNFC) has countinued to use Schoellkopf as a summer camp for Boy Scouts. Schoellkopf was primarily used as a patrol style summer camp where troops cooked their own meals. Troops that desired a dining hall experience went to Camp Scouthaven. However, in the late 1980s, when Camp Scouthaven closed as a boy scout summer camp (it remains open as a cub camp), a dining tent was erected at Schoellkopf. As a result, the vast majority of tropps attending Camp Schoellkopf use the dining facilities.

Pictured below is their 1948 camp patch.

Another Undated Stratton Mountain Scout Reservation 3 inch Round

by @ 12:16 pm. Tags: ,
Filed under pre-1960 NYS Camps

Here is an another undated Stratton Mountain Scout Reservation patch. It is a 3″round twill cut edge patch. It does not have the design of the burro or donkey which became standard on many of their later patches.

Stratton Mountain Round 1950 or 1951?

Stratton Mountain Round 1950 or 1951?

From what I have been able to glean, this is likely from 1950 or 1951. Can anyone confirm the years of use? Also have herd that there may have been rockers to this patch. Looking for images and/or confirmation.

Does anyone have other images from pre-1960 Stratton Mountain patches?

Camp Brooklyn Museum Award

by @ 3:33 pm. Filed under Camp Brooklyn

I am of mixed minds on this one, the TMR Museum website shows this as a Museum award dating back to Kanohwahke Lakes Scout Camps in the 1920s. I would like to obtain better provenance on this if possible.

Here is the patch in my collection.

Camp Brooklyn Museum Award

Camp Brooklyn Museum Award

An undated pamphlet A Brooklyn Scout In Camp indicates a museum award, for what today we would refer to as the Nature Lodge, could be earned.

The line drawings do not reflect the design of the patch shown below, but later in the booklet, the belt award for the museum is shown as:

None of the Camp Guides for Camp Brooklyn at either Kanohwahke Lakes Scout Camps or Ten Mile River show the specific design although all do refer to an award which could be earned. By 1930, there were two updated versions of the museum award patch available as shown below.

An earlier Kanohwahke Lakes Scout Camp Guide does shows similar design with an M rather than a B.

Can you add anything to the story?

Blue Acorn Whatsit?

Filed under Ten Mile River pre-1965

I have been trying to get more information on the felt acorn shaped patch shown below.

Blue Acorn Whatsit?

Blue Acorn Whatsit?

While researching in the Ten Mile River Scout Camps Archives, I came across the following in an old Camp Guide from 1927 for Kanohwahke Lakes Scout Camps.

and

As you can see on the second page the line drawing appears to match the felt acorn above. The colors also match the gray and blue colors on some of the earlier Manhattan colors, although admittedly the common color scheme is blue and gold.

Anyone have more information or provide a confirmation? there were any number on NY metro councils with camps at Kanohwahke Lakes Scout Camps during the 1910’s through 1930’s.

Camp Man Catholic Chapel Christmas Ornament

by @ 10:59 am. Filed under Ten Mile River Scout Musuem

For the 2019 season the Ten Mile River Scout Museum has added a new Ornament to its store.

Several years ago the Museum heavy lift crew moved the Camp Man Catholic Chapel stained glass window to the museum to preserve it and give folk who did not hike into one of the old closed camps a chance to see it.

You can buy the ornament and patch at the TMR Museum this summer; $ 10 for the ornament and $ 5 for the patch.

If you are not able to visit, the museum has added a plastic Christmas ornament to its online store where the ornament is on sale for $ 13 including shipping.

Check out the store for other items available online.
