|Description: At various times in the history of Cedar
Valley, various summer camp promotions and incentives were tried. One of these
was to encourage "early" registration. In 1963 we tried what we believe was
our first of these early registrations with the above insignia. Typically
all of these early registation promotions required that a scout register
to attend camp before April 30th. Sometimes a partial payment of the camp
fee was also required.
While in theory these patches should have been easy for anyone to get at the time, for whatever reasons, many scouts did not get them. Today, while not rare like other early patches, the are still not as commonly seen as you would expect. In the last several years, fewer than ten of these 1963 early registration patch have been seen for example.
