Camp Wakpominee Orange Felt Round Pocket Patch

by @ 3:46 pm. Filed under pre-1960 NYS Camps

Another NYS Camp patch, this one is from Camp Wakpominee. The lodge which served this council also had the same name. Wakpominee was the camp of Mohican Council, it is still in use today as part Twin Rivers Council. The patch is not quite four inches tall.

Not sure of the year on this one it looks like a 1950’s or early 1960’s can anyone confirm the years it was used?

Filed under Camp Chappegat, Ten Mile River pre-1965

This one allowed me to check off one of my TMR Staff Neckerchief needs, I had the patch separately but not the ne3ckerchief. Sometimes months go by without seeing one, but this is the several recent acquisitions.

Camp Chappegat, was part of the Brooklyn Scout Camps at Ten Mile River Scout Camps. It was located on the Delaware side of the camp. It eventually closed, but parts were used by ‘greater’ Kunatah for many years.

Continuing its tradition which began in 2004, the Ten Mile River Scout Museum produced a patch which could be earned by all scouts free of charge who visited and completed the Museum program in 2018. This year’s Historian patch had a white border and used an updated logo which it shared with the updated Ten Mile River Historical Trail.

Ten Mile River Scout Camps Purple Cloth Gold Piping Neckerchief

by @ 4:19 pm. Filed under Ten Mile River - Modern

I had previously written about two other varieties of this neckerchief, a White and Brown one and a Orange and Black version. I believe these were issued during the late 1970’s or early 1980’s in various color combinations with the same basic design. This one was embroidered on Purple cloth with Gold Piping.

Henry Kaufman Scout Camp was located in Huntington, Long Island and operated from circa 1960 to 1975; when it was sold to Suffolk County. I had previously shared a neckerchief which pictured the Camp Sign with a pine tree. Here is another, I beielve one of the earliest issued likely in the 1960’s.
