Filed under Ten Mile River Scout Musuem

I had previously posted about the Christmas Ornament issued in 2019 of the Camp Man Catholic Chapel Stained Glass Window which was moved to the Museum several years ago.

In 2016, there were two oval patches issued with the Camp Man Catholic Chapel Stained Glass Window design, The first version with a black border sold out during the summer and a second version with a red border was ordered and is shown below.

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?

by @ 4:00 pm. Tags: ,
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.

Camp Brooklyn – The Teepee and Canoe Third Degree

by @ 2:10 pm. Filed under Camp Brooklyn

Prior to 1938, each borough had its own awards program. Brooklyn moved many of the awards that could be earned at their Kanohwahke Scout Camps located at Bear Mountain Parks in NY to Ten Mile River. The primary award was the Teepee and Canoe a series of three degrees earned by campers by completing various requirements. I wrote about the First Degree Patch a few of weeks ago and the second Degree Patch last weekend.

Shown below is the Third Degree Patch, unlike the earlier patches this one is not felt, but rather a thin chenille-like patch.

The versions from Kanohwahke Lakes Scout Camps had a different color scheme orange and black.

I can show a second degree version from Kanohwahke Lakes with the orange and black color scheme.

I’m still looking for those if anyone has one or both for trade or sale.

Brooklyn Scout Camp – Wilderness Camper Felt

by @ 4:04 pm. Filed under Camp Brooklyn

I’ve written about the various TMR Scout programs over the years beginning in 1938. Previous to that time each of the borough camps had their own insignia and achievement programs. Last December I wrote about a Brooklyn Roving Camp felt patch.

Here is a felt Wilderness Camper patch from the Brooklyn Camps. There are several varieties which follow the same design.

The first degree was the Teepee with a B for Brooklyn in the camp colors Khaki and Maroon, the second degree adds a maroon canoe.
