For the first time since 1974, TMR did not issue a Jacket Patch, but did issue a pocket patch with a variation of the Indian Cliffs design. The patch did feature the native American Chief on Indian Cliffs, but rather than overlooking the Delaware River Valley, it overlooks the NYC Skyline.

Camp Kernochan 1972 Founders Day Patch

by @ 1:41 pm. Tags: , ,
Filed under Camp Kernochan

1972 was the 45th Anniversary of Ten Mile Rive Scout Camps. Atlantic District in Brooklyn had chosen Camp Kernochan as the site of its district camp. I was SPL of Troop 296 at the time and John Romanovich was Camp Director. As part of the Anniversary Program, John Ramonovich held a Founders Day celebration on the parade grounds while Atlantic District was in camp. A patch was issued for the event. This was one of the few Camp patches issued by an individual Camp as most were issued at the reservation level. It wasn’t until 1975 when patches were regularly issued with the individual camp names.

Are you aware of any other individual TMR camp issues from the 1960’s or early 1970’s?

Ten Mile River Scout Felt Red Orange Green Tri-Color Pocket Patch

by @ 12:58 pm. Tags:
Filed under Ten Mile River pre-1965

During its earliest years at TMR, each borough operated its own independent camp(s). 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 Scout would earn a basic Award, then awards in individual program areas. Each Scout had a record book where his progress towards each award could be measured; these books were issued with at least 3 different colored covers (tan, green. and blue) and with varying page counts. The booklet was entitled Ten Mile River Scout Symbol of Good Citizenship.

Here is a tricolor version issued for completing the requirements in each program area.

This is one of my favorite non-Indian Cliff Jacket Patches which was issued by TMR back in 1971. I believe it was the first fully embroidered Jacket Patch issued by TMR.

The original Camp Wauwepex opened in 1921 in Miller Place, then moved to the present location in Wading River. It has served thousands of campers from Nassau County ever since. Wauwepex served the Scouts of than Nassau County Council and still serves the Scouts of Theodore Roosevelt council under the name Schiff Scout Reservation.

Here is an image of the 19609 patch shown below.
