Hiya can anyone translate this patch having trouble with the second word. Thank you for any help.
Crescent Bay Camp
I wonder whether that is actually 2 words - Bay Camp, with a teepee dividing them.
what does that have to do with scouting?
Nothing actually. The OP made an assumption about scouting that didn't pan out?
Why did it not pan out? Research helps..... http://www.crescentbaycouncil.org/
The only Crescent Bay Camps I found quickly were in Washington state and New York and neither had any association with scouting. And my post was a question, not a fact.
It looks like a local Boy Scout camp patch. I have one from my dad from the early 1940's (not from the same camp). Mine doesn't have anything on it that says Boy Scouts, but I know that's what it is (I have photos and letters from the local Boy Scout leadership regarding the camp). However, I'm surprised that a google images search doesn't return anything. Even the rare ones often pull up a match (to either an original patch, or an Asian reproduction being fobbed off as the real thing).
It is here.... https://emeraldbayalumni.org/museum/patchhistory/
