|2005 Museum Historian Patch Award
This summer, your Scouts can earn the beautiful T.M.R. Museum Historian patch (new design). All requirements can be completed with one visit to the Ten Mile River Scout Museum. Best of all, the patch is free to Scouts.
After earning the Historian patch, your Scouts can earn the T.M.R. Museum Explorer rocker by participating in either a self-guided G.P.S.-based or staff-guided walking tour of one of the historic T.M.R. Camps.
More than any other two persons, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Frederic Kernochan were responsible for the creation of the Ten Mile River Scout Camps during the 1920’s. Roosevelt went on to become 32nd President of the United States and was elected to four terms during the Great Depression and World War II. He was one of the most important persons that lived during the 20th Century.
In a major exhibit, the T.M.R. Scout Museum explores the lives of both men and the roles they played in the development of the Ten Mile River Scout Camps, New York City Scouting and National Scouting. It features many rare and early photos and reproductions of awards given to Roosevelt by the New York City and National Scouting organizations.
Tuesday and Thursday nights are movie nights at the Ten Mile River Scout Museum. See on our new WIDE-SCREEN TV movies on T.M.R. and Scouting history and major motion pictures staring Boy Scouts. Look for our movie schedule in the T.M.R. newspaper or call the Museum. Limited seating requires advance reservations. Call the Museum first to reserve your seats.
