Camp Wauwepex/Schiff Scout Reservation Patches
1927-1969


Each year Wauwepex issued a patch for campers to wear on their uniform, either on their shirt or jacket. It's fun to look through them as reminders of camping seasons past.

Here are the earliest Wauwepex patches, up through 1969. Links to the later years are at the bottom of this page. 

The earliest Camp Wauwepex patches were made of felt and shaped like a teepee. They had a CW for the camp and a number. You earned one of these patches by completing a Scoutcraft skill test. You would then get a patch with a "2" for your second test, then a "3" and so on. Some versions had the CW and number flocked on, others used embroidered letters and numbers.
