Onteora Scout Reservation Patches

There are less patches for this decade due to the years the camp was closed.


This great jacket patch was issued in 1994 to commemorate a very important event - the re-opening of Onteora as a summer camp! I was thrilled to see my old unit, Troop 182, as one of the groups carrying on such a wonderful tradition.

A beautiful jacket patch from 1998.

This is very hard to see, as it's all done in white. It's a view of Onteora in the winter. Issued by Iroquois District for Bluenose 1998.

Summer campers could buy the bobcat on the left for their jackets; the white one on the right is only for those hardy enough to camp at OSR in winter. 1998 issues.
