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 Iphetonga was also know as Iphetonga Village. You can see the stylized IV in their designs, since Ippy was Division Four in the old Brooklyn Camps.

Aquehonga: 49, 51, 52, 53, 55, 59,

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>

Anyone have any other old felts from Camp Ranachqua?

Not sure the exact era for this Staff neckerchief, would say it is circa 1978-1983. Can anyone provide an exact date for it?

Ten Mile River Lander’s Yellow and Red Neckerchief

by @ 4:16 pm. Tags:
Filed under Not TMR

Bob Landers, and prior to that Nick Dales is a canoe livery on the Delaware River near Ten Mile River Scout Camps. This is a private company providing canoe rentals to groups and individuals in addition to many Scout groups. Nick Dale as some of you may know was active in GNYC and Brooklyn Council and worked at the Brooklyn Camps on Rock Lake prior to starting what is now Landers.

As their main lodge was located on one of the branches of the Ten Mile River, their proximity to the camp and their Scouting roots, over the years, they have issued a number of patches and neckerchiefs.

Their memorabilia never referred to the Scout Camp or used the Indian cliffs logo, but always contained the words Ten Mile River in the design.

I recently acquired the neckerchief below, which shows their typical design but in a color combination I had not seen before. There is no checklist showing all of the color combinations and dates of use for the various patches and neckerchiefs used over the years. Thanks to Ian Pinnavaia for this one.

Does anyone have any other color combinations?

Here is one which I beleive dates to the 1960’s or 70’s.
