Ten Mile River Alumni Association

by @ 9:28 am. Filed under Ten Mile River - Modern

Ten Mile River Scout Reservation has hundreds of thousands of Alumni. Like many scout camps, they also have an Alumni Association and what would a TMR Alumni Association be with their own patch. One which uses the iconic Indian Cliffs design.

TMR 1977 50th Anniversary Staff Patch

by @ 9:18 am. Filed under Uncategorized

Back in 1977 I was the Waterfront Director of Camp Ranachqua and later Canoe Base. It was also the 50th Anniversary of Ten Mile River Scout Reservation. This is one of my favorite ‘modern’era patches from Ten Mile River patches even though it does not use the iconic Indian Cliffs view.

Some staff members wore 155mm tall patcg on their right sleeve.

Got this one back in 2016, but realized I had not posted an image. It allowed me to check off one of my TMR Staff Neckerchief needs. Sometimes months go by without seeing one, but this is the several recent acquisitions.

Camp Ihpetonga, was part of the Brooklyn Scout Camps at Ten Mile River Scout Camps. It was located on the Delaware side of the camp. It eventually closed after the 1966 Summer Camp Season.

Camp Stillwaters 1960 Staff Neckerchief

Filed under Camp Stillwaters

1959 was really the end of the era of individual Camp Staff neckerchiefs, there were still several years where uniform staff neckerchiefs were worn throughout the reservation. There were 13 neckerchiefs in the series which included twelve Operating Camps and Headquarters.

In 1960 there was Green and Blue Tartan, in 1961 the same patch was used but the Tartan was changed to Gray and Green.

Each patch shows a map of TMR broken down into the three sections (Delaware, Crystal and Schiff). Each Division had its own Headquarters in addition to the reservation-wide Headquarters which is still in use today. The color of the lettering of the Section and Camp name is coded to the color of the Section in the map.

The location of the individual camp is denoted by a red star.

Below is a picture of the Staff Neckerchief for Camp Stillwaters. Camp Stillwaters was part of the Queens Camps and was located on Crystal Lake.

Camp Ranachqua RAA Felt

by @ 4:42 pm. Filed under Camp Ranachqua

A few weeks back, I had written about a couple of the Ranachqua Camper Patches. Here is another felt from the same era. Bronx Scouts would attend Camp Ranachqua. After 1937 all of the borough awards were replace with the TMR Scout Program.

I believe the “RAA” stands for Ranachqua Aquatic Aide. Can anyone confirm this>
