During its earliest years, each borough operated its own independent camp(s) at Ten Mile River. Things began to change in 1938 when Alfred C. Nichols became the Director of TMR. A standard reservation‑wide program called the TMR Scout Award replaced individual borough awards and recognition programs.

A Scout had to complete various tasks and activities to earn the award. A second level of mastery was evidenced by a small metal star on a pin bar in the same color as the border.

The patch was used from 1938 to circa 1950 when it was replaced by cloth varieties.
