Collecting Ten Mile River, one patch at a time

Camp Brooklyn – The Teepee and Canoe Third Degree

by @ 2:10 pm on May 11, 2019. 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.
