Posts Tagged ‘Philmont’

I stumbled on an interesting collection of photographs hosted by the Johnson County (Kansas) Museum.  One of the collections includes several images of Troop 87 from Olathe, Kansas.  Troop 87 was affiliated with the Kansas School for the Deaf in Olathe, but disbanded in the 1980s based on a February 2010 article in the Olathe Daily News.  Based on the photos on the website, Troop 87 was quite active including visits to Philmont and Region 10’s Charles L. Sommers Wilderness Canoe Base.  Here are some samples (All Photos Credit:  Kansas State School for the Deaf.):

On another note, if you have any information about this 1965 Deaf Camporee patch, please contact me.

Here are a couple of interesting neckerchiefs from Kaw Council…the first is a 1968 Troop 45 neckerchief complete with Philmont bull design (thanks to Mike Berenson for letting me scan his neckerchief).

The second neckerchief (thanks to Jody Tucker) is from what I believe to be a Camp Naish staff contingent to Philmont from 1962.  As shown on the neckerchief, the “TN” brand of Camp Naish is shown next to the “PS” brand from Philmont.  Several years ago I remember a reference to a Camp Staff contingent to Philmont from 1963 or so, but I haven’t been able to track it down.

I am certain there are more contingent neckerchiefs out there from the Kansas City area…if you’ve got one, please send a scan my way and I’ll post it!

AND ONE MORE…

Mike Berenson just sent along the following scan of a 1961 Kaw Council Philmont neckerchief.  The neckerchief is a little faded but the boots have the Philont brands on the soles in yellow ink.  Thanks Mike!
