Welcome to the Firecrafter Historical Center

Firecrafter Woodsman Patches

This is a five inch felt chest Woodsman patch. When a Scout became a Camper, he received a khaki vest with the Camper "C" emblem sewn on it. When he became a Woodsman, a yellow teepee was added to his original patch. The underside of this patch clearly shows the "C" machine sewn on to the blue felt and the teepee sewn in Scout-like fashion by hand. When the Scout became a Firecrafter, he received a whole new patch including the red fire. The fire shirts (and therefore the chest patches) for Campers and Woodsmen were discontinued in the 1930's.
