As part of the 80th Anniversary Celebration, a series of CSP’s have been issued. The 3 CSP’s were issued to celebrate the 80th Anniversary of TMR, the 75th Anniversary of the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) and the 10th Anniversary of the Ten Mile River Scout Museum.

From Wikipedia:

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a work relief program for young men from unemployed families established on March 19, 1933 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in his first hundred days. It was part of the New Deal designed to combat the poverty and unemployment of the Great Depression in the United States. The CCC became one of the most popular New Deal programs among the general public and operated in every state and several territories. The young men went to camps of about 200 men each for six month “periods” where they were paid to do outdoor construction work. The Indian Division was a major relief agency for Indian reservations.

The CCC were instrumental in providing much of the early construction of the Ten Mile Scout Camps.  The CCC camp was located near what today is the Headquarters Area.
