I have written about the various TMR Scout programs over the years beginning in 1938. The two displays of TMR Scout (Felt & Cloth) currently displayed in the TMR Museum are part of my personal collection.

The colors has specific meaning and were used for different program areas.

    1. Program Area Color Basic Advanced
    1. Aquatics Blue Waterbug Waterfront Guide
    1. Nature Green Naturalist Nature Guide
    1. Craftsmanship Orange Craftsman Craft Guide
    1. Hiking Red Hiker Trail Guide

Most of the two color variations, are split horizontally. With one color atop the other. Here is a variation were the two colors are side by side.

I often post about the iconic Ten Mile River logo. The Native American with coup stick overlooking the Delaware River from Indian Cliffs. To the best of my knowledge, the first version of this patch goes back to circa 1965 with the Jacket Patch shown below.

What is the first use of this image? There are a number of neckerchiefs which use this design which appear to date from the 1960’s. So which came first, the patch or the neckerchiefs?

My first year as a Scout was the 40th Anniversary of Camp and while the patch collecting bug took a few more years to kick in, it was not long after that I acquired this 40th Anniversary Jacket Patch.

Camp Saratoga operated as a boy scout camp originally under the auspices of Saratoga County Council from 1930 to 2001 when it became part of the Wilton Wildlife Preserve & Park. Approximately 25 acres of the 310-acre camp is owned by the Town of Wilton, the remaining acerage is owned by New York State.

These exist in both cut and rolled edge for several years.

In 2005 in addition to the 50th Anniversary Patch, a patch was also issued for Frontier Land. I believe this was used for the First year camper program; can anyone confirm this?

Ten Mile River Solar Energy Patch 1979

Filed under Ten Mile River - Modern

Back in the mid to late 1970’s, there was a program at TMR devoted to Solar Energy which include cooking with a reflector oven. A patch was available for completing the program, The oval design was the same, but the colors changed each year. It was begun as a program for Aquehonga Provisionals in 1975 through 1977 by Jesse Slome. It was also written up in the June 1976 issue of Boy’s Life magazine in an article by Jesse himself.

Jesse wrote a Solar Energy program for scouts to do in Aquehonga where they had to explain solar energy, make some solar equipment and cook some meals. He got Exxon to pay for a lot of the equipment and foot the bill for the patches each year. It was extended into other camps after that. By 1977 he was working for GNYC so it’s possible that they tried it again in ’79.

I had written about the reinvigorated Ten Mile River Historical Trail this past summer; there was an earlier version with a pocket and jacket patch issued. Can anyone provide the timeframe? I believe it was at least 15 30 years ago.

And Frank Rickenbaugh added

The Medal and two patches (pocket and Back) were ordered when Dan Ruth was still at GNYC. He left for National after the 1989 summer season. When the supplies ran out Ron Green would not approve a reorder. Hope this helps.

2004 was the 45th Anniversary of Woodstock held near the reservation at Yasgur’s Farm in Bethel, NY. The 2004 Camp Keowa patch was a homage to that event. Shown below is the Staff patch for the 2004 season.
