Here is a felt Arrowhead from Camp Ranachqua, I’ve seen this one in another color scheme as well.

Trying to date this patch, don’t think it goes back as far as the green and black felts from the 1930’s. Looking for information.

Camp Brooklyn – The Teepee and Canoe Third Degree

Filed under Camp Brooklyn

Prior to 1938, each borough had its own awards program. Brooklyn moved many of the awards that could be earned at their Kanohwahke Scout Camps located at Bear Mountain Parks in NY to Ten Mile River. The primary award was the Teepee and Canoe a series of three degrees earned by campers by completing various requirements. I wrote about the First Degree Patch a few of weeks ago and the second Degree Patch last weekend.

Shown below is the Third Degree Patch, unlike the earlier patches this one is not felt, but rather a thin chenille-like patch.

Brooklyn Scout Camp – Wilderness Camper Felt

by @ 4:04 pm. Filed under Camp Brooklyn

I’ve written about the various TMR Scout programs over the years beginning in 1938. Previous to that time each of the borough camps had their own insignia and achievement programs. Last December I wrote about a Brooklyn Roving Camp felt patch.

Here is a felt Wilderness Camper patch from the Brooklyn Camps. There are several varieties which follow the same design.

Camp Brooklyn – The Teepee and Canoe Second Degree

Prior to 1938, each borough had its own awards program. Brooklyn moved many of the awards that could be earned at their Kanohwahke Scout Camps located at Bear Mountain Parks in NY to Ten Mile River. The primary award was the Teepee and Canoe a series of three degrees earned by campers by completing various requirements. I wrote about the First Degree Patch a couple of weeks ago.

The first degree was the Teepee with a B for Brooklyn in the camp colors Khaki and Maroon, the second degree adds a maroon canoe.

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.
