Filed under Camp Keowa

As we shiver through the long winter, thoughts of summer camp help keep us warm. The 2018 summer camp season is over, so it is now time to continue post the new issues from 2018.

One of the individual camp issues is one from Camp Keowa for 2018. It utilizes their Thunderbird totem as part of the design along with a lightning storm.

Filed under pre-1960 NYS Camps

Massawepie Camps issued its first patch in 1953(? it is undated, can anyone confirm the issue date?) during this time it was part of Otetiana Council. Now it is part of Seneca Waterways Council which describes the camp as

Located on a 3,769 acre parcel in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York State, Massawepie Scout Camps combine unique wilderness programs with a traditional Boy Scout summer camp.

Canoe, kayak, or sail on our gorgeous mile-long private lake, hike over 20 miles of well-kept trails, and camp along eight ecologically diverse ponds — all without ever leaving camp property. Massawepie’s location is perfect for programs like mountain biking, outpost camping, and high-adventure experiences for older scouts and Venture Crews. Our highly trained Voyager guides can lead your unit on a 3- or 6-day trek through the Adirondack wilderness — by foot, canoe, or bike — as either an independent trip or an extension of your week of Camp.

Beech Mountain 1946 Scout Camp Felt Pocket Patch

Filed under pre-1960 NYS Camps

My first post in that category of per-1960 NYS Scout Camps was a felt pocket patch from Beech Mountain Scout Camps and a few days ago I posted one for 1944 and another for 1945.

Here is a dated one from 1946 this one only says Beech Mountain Scout Camp.

Was there a difference in the program between Beech Mountain Scout Camp and Beech Mountain Pioneer Camp? Or was it just a name change at some point? Was there any overlap where both versions were available?

Who knows the rest of the story.

Ten Mile River Lander’s Teepee Neckerchief

by @ 2:25 pm. Tags:
Filed under Not TMR

Bob Landers, and prior to that Nick Dales is a canoe livery on the Delaware River near Ten Mile River Scout Camps. This is a private company providing canoe rentals to groups and individuals in addition to many Scout groups. Nick Dale as some of you may know was active in GNYC and Brooklyn Council and worked at the Brooklyn Camps on Rock Lake prior to starting what is now Landers.

As their main lodge was located on one of the branches of the Ten Mile River, their proximity to the camp and their Scouting roots, over the years, they have issued a number of patches and neckerchiefs.

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.

I recently acquired the neckerchief below, which does not contain their typical design but does have their Indian in profile.

Ten Mile River Scout Camps Chappegat Neckerchief

I had previously written about the 1959 Scouting Exposition held at Ten Mile River Scout Camps in 1959. They must have had a stack of these neckerchiefs left over, as there are variations for each of the than active camps created using the base neckerchief with a black circle screened over the 1959 Scouting Exposition and the Camp name overprinted in White.

The version for Chappegat is shown below:

Aside from Staff patches and neckerchiefs, this was probably one the earliest examples of memorabilia issued for an individual TMR Camp.

While the image shown below was for a Scouting Exposition held at Ten Mile River Scout Camps nearly 60 years ago, they can still be seen regularly today.

The image depicts a scout raising a flap superimposed over the outline of the Scout Camps with the 6 lakes which are part of the reservation.

Does anyone know the details of when the Exposition was held and what it entailed?

Camp Manhattan 1954 ‘R’ Staff Neckerchief.

by @ 3:39 pm. Tags:
Filed under Camp Manhattan

Here is an another example of a Staff neckerchief from a time when scouts camped at Ten Mile River by borough. As you might imagine, Camp Manhattan was for scouts from that borough and was located on Crystal Lake. The area which comprised Camp Manhattan was later divided into Camp Rondack and Camp Keowa.

What makes this unique, is there were two versions this year, one with an ‘R’ and one with a ‘K’ As you may suspect, the ‘R’ was for Rondack. Beginning in 1955 both Camp Keowa and Camp Rondack each had their own names on their memorabilia.
