Silver Mylar Border: 11 or 12 months of camping.
Units earning the 9 or 11+ month award will be recognized at their district roundtable by the Tukarica Lodge with a special certificate and a gold mylar bordered version of the award patch. Award patches cost $3.50 and qualifying adults will be allowed to buy one gold mylar patch for $5.00 each (subject to availability). Currently the patch awards are available for purchase at the Ore-Ida Council Office.
