Just like with patches, there are plenty of different neckerchiefs to keep collectors busy. I've shown my own here as well as some images of ones that slipped past me - so far! Sorry for the "glare" on some of these; if they're in a plastic bag I left them sealed.
One other comment. I scanned these neckerchiefs years ago when file sizes were usually kept low both for space and for download times. I hope to redo these in larger sizes in the future.
Please let me know if you have any neckerchiefs not shown - even a scan would be appreciated.
These neckerchiefs are the ones issued to Scouts for summer camp programs at Onteora. Below you will find neckerchiefs issued for special programs or events.

It's hard to see on screen, but the neckerchief features a map of the camp. Handy if you happen to get lost.
The camp ran a popular canoe program that started at Onteora for training then set out for canoe trips on the Delaware River or in the Adirondack mountains.
