Onteora patches 2000 - present

The next group of patches shows there has been quite an explosive amount of growth in the number of OSR patches released in recent years. This reflects a new trend in patch collecting where patches are being issued for all sorts of events, not just the traditional one for summer camp.

I scanned many of these patches 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 patches not shown - even a scan would be appreciated.

Summer camp patches

Let's start with the Summer Camp issues, as they are most closely linked to why the camp exists in the first place.

A total of seven very small patches were produced to be sewn on top of the feathers on the 2003 Indian patch. Earning all seven was quite a challenge!

Onteora Alumni Association

The OAA began with a large reunion in 2001 to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Onteora. The association itself was formed in 2002 and exists to help promote program activities at OSR, and to provide a bridge between the traditions of the past with the Scouting of today. Membership is open to all former campers and Staff, or anyone else interested in keeping Onteora one of the top Boy Scout camps in the country. More information will be provided on the OAA as I continue to update the site.

Please note that I have been a member of the OAA since Day 1 and likely have many of these patches and just need to find them! I'm also not sure if we did patches for all of the Fall Weekends - if you have scans or know that we did not issue patches for some years please let me know.
