2013 Summer Camp Patch

This year, our scouts elected to return to Resica Falls Scout Reservation for their summer camp experience.  A large number of factors went into their decision, but I’d have to speculate and suggest that the catered food, olympic pool with waterslide, and amazing swimming holes along the Bushkill Creek were significant factors.  

The leaders guide suggests that the theme of the week will be Pirates!  To complement the theme and to provide an opportunity for patch trading at camp, I decided to commission a special patch for the group of scouts who’ll be attending.  In the past, we’ve taken patches to trade, but many of the other scouts shrug their shoulders and say that they’ve never heard of patch trading — offering to purchase patches from our collection (as though they found them on Ebay, etc.)

We’ll give our scouts the option of buying extras in order to resell or trade if they’re interested.

The larger issue is which patch design is best — I have my favorite and the scouts have their own favorite.  Care to let us know your preference and why?
