After a year where a half dozen Jacket Patches were issued, in 1974 Ten Mile River Scout Camps scaled back and only issued a single pocket patch, a three inch round. For those keeping score, this was my first year on camp staff where I ran the Waterfront in Family Camp.

Undated Camp Bedford Diamond Pocket Patch

Filed under pre-1960 NYS Camps

Here is another NYS camp patch, this one is from Adirondack’s Council Camp Bedford. This camp is still in use today and under the management of Twin Rivers Council.

Looking to confirm the dates this patch was used, it has the look of something from the later 1960’s or even early 1970’s, but is cloth backed.

Another pre-1960 NYS Camp patch, this one is from Camp Babcock Hovey. Camp Babcock Hovey was the camp of Finger Lakes Council, it is still in use today as part Seneca Waterways Council. The lodge which served this Camp and Council was Ganeodiyo Lodge #417. It is now served by Tschipey Achtu Lodge #(95). This was another item I acquired at the Williamsville TOR last month.
