Collecting Ten Mile River, one patch at a time

Newcombe Scout Camp

by @ 9:34 pm on April 21, 2008. Filed under Camp Newcombe

Camp Newcombe was one of the short-term camps of Greater New York Councils from the 1930’s until the 1960’s. It was located on Long Pond near Wading River Long Island.  It was a small camp, approximately 45 acres on a 40 acre natural lake. It was also used at least for a time in the 1930’s as a lone-troop summer camp.  It contained 4 Lodges and 8 small cabins as well as a number of tent sites.

I am only aware of a single piece of memorabilia issued for this camp.  I’d be interested in information (or a trade on any other items issued for this camp.
