Troop Color Patch

TROOP 315 SEVEN COLOR PATCH

This patch is awarded to both Scouts and Adults after their first backpacking overnight after joining the Troop.
It is to be worn on the right sleeve of the brown Class A scout shirt, just below the American Flag.

The three images reflect high adventure trips the troop had taken in the past. The bottom left image of the canoe represents the Charles Sommers Canoe Base, a Boy Scout High Adventure base in Ely, MN. The upper left image is of Mt Rushmore and depicts several western trips. The upper right image represents Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimmaron, NM.

The troop was the subject of an article in Boys Life in the late 1970’s for one of it's trips to the mountains of Colorado for a horse trip in the mountains. The cover photo of that month’s issue showed some troop members on horseback.

This patch is earned when a Scout or Adult leader participates in four consecutive months of at least one Troop outing/event during each month. Consecutive months are essential in earning this award. If you miss a month, you must re-start the count of your consecutive months again.

This patch is placed on the right sleeve of the brown Class A scout shirt below the Troop Color Patch.

Troop Silver Award

Troop Gold Award

RUGGED ROAD GOLD AWARD

This patch is earned when a Scout or Adult leader participates in at least one Troop outing/event consecutively every month for an entire year without missing a month. This requires active involvement with the Troop each month and it is a great accomplishment to acheive this award.

This patch replaces the Silver Award.

Once you have earned this award, you can then start counting backpacking miles toward mileage special awards.


Troop Mileage Awards

TROOP MILEAGE AWARDS

Scouts and Adults are eligible for these awards.
These patches are placed directly below the Gold Award on the right sleeve of the brown Class A scout shirt.

You may only have one mileage award below the Rugged Road Gold Award. Each star represents 100 completed miles with the Troop carrying a pack, after having earned your Gold Award. Only Troop 315 hikes with a minimum of three scouts and adult leaders count towards the accumulation of miles.

The 5-stars represent from five hundred (500) to one thousand miles(1,000) hiked with a backpack. Very few have reached 1,000 miles, but it is possible during your scouting tenure.

Individual event participation and an accumlative mileage reports for each scout and adult are available by request from the Scoutmaster or Awards Chair.

Mischa Mokwa Trail Patch

The trail includes an initial elevation gain of over 2000' and several grueling miles of challenging hiking. The changing weather conditions at the top of the ridge(3000' +) overlooking the valley often add to the excitment of this hike.
