Camp Patches

Over the years several different styles of patches have been issued to the Scouts and leaders who attended summer camp.  At least one shield patch, the size of a back patch, was also issued.  Here are some of those patches with the approximate date of use.

In the early 1950's through the late 1950s  the camp started using woven patches, with a gray background, that looked out from the porch of the log cabin across the parade ground to Cat Mountain.  The star, located  on the right, in the patch represents the Lone Star Trail.  The "TW" on the left was the camp brand.
In the late 1950's through the middle 1960s woven patches were used with a white background keeping the same view as in the previous patches.
