Prior to 1937 each NYC borough had its own summer camp awards which would only be earned by Scouts attending one of the borough camps at Ten Mile River Scout Camps. For Bronx Scouts that would be Ranachqua. After 1937 all of the borough awards were replace with the TMR Scout Program. The awards are […]

by @ Monday, November 18th, 2013. Filed under Ten Mile River pre-1965

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 […]

I’ve written that during its earliest years, each borough operated its own independent camp(s). Things began to change in 1938 when Alfred C. Nichols became the Director of TMR.

TMR Neckerchief Neither Fish Nor Fowl

I’ve previously written about Bob Lander’s and Nick Dale’s, a restaurant and canoe livery that issued a number of patches and neckerchiefs over the years. 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. Here is a neckerchief I […]

After the era of individual Camp Staff neckerchiefs ended in 1959, there were several years where uniform staff neckerchiefs were worn throughout the reservation. In 1960 there was Green and Blue Tartan, in 1961 while the same patch was used bit the Tartan was Gray and Green. The patches show a map of TMR broken […]

I’ve written about the Ten Mile River Scout Program before. 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. This program was designed around four of the program areas offered at camp. A […]

I recently acquired a 1953 Staff Neckerchief from  Ten Mile river’s Camp Kunatah. There is also a staff patch issued for this year. The staff patch is still a need of mine. As far as I know, this is the only time there was both a patch and a neckerchief issued by a TMR camp […]

Filed under Ten Mile River pre-1965

I’d previously written about a 1956 TMR Headquarters Staff Patch. These issues have been seen with dates from at least the mid-1950′s to the mid 1960′s. This particular patch was listed in the 1st Edition of A Guide to Memorabilia of the Ten Mile River Scout Camps as belonging to Headquarters Staff. The information on […]
