Camp Temagami T-shirts
Type 1: Camp Temagami Shirt; ca. 1938
There were two styles of camp shirts known to exist. The earliest is the style in the above photos of a clearly drawn Camp Temagami logo of an Indian head over two crossed paddles and two opposing fish. The words "Camp Temagami" are in capital letters in plain type without serifs. This style is first seen in the years shortly before WWII. This design has only been seen on long sleeved sweat shirts.
Type 2: Camp Temagami Shirt: ca 1958
Blue sweat shirt for Staff about 1962:
The second type still uses the Camp logo as described above but the logo is stylized with the face looking more skull like. The lettering of this version consists of log letters. This type emerged in the late 1950s or early 1960s and could have been introduced by Douglas Gardner after he aquired the Camp from the Cochranes. It would make sense that Gardner was attempting to place his imprimateur on the Camp yet still maintaining Cochrane traditions.
This 1960s type had sweatshirt and t-shirt versions and was offered in white or blue. The blue shirt may have only been for staff, since it is seen only with block letters "STAFF" at the top of the logo.
Type 3: Camp Temagami T-shirt- 2016
This T-shirt uses the 1960s version of the Camp shirt logo with the spelling executed with log letters copied from an original shirt.
In keeping with the liklihood that today's wearers will be somewhat 'senior', the logo on the front is smaller and over the right breast. This lends a more sophisticated look to the front of the shirt. However, the back of the shirt has the large logo that screams out , " CAMP TEMAGAMI" to those the wearer walks away from.
The shirt comes in all youth and adult sizes. The initial batch of shirts was produced in mid- July 2016. In the fall of 2016 the staff point of contact at www.CampTemgami.org will have more shirts printed and made available on this site. The cost for the shirt with shipping and handling should be approximately$20.00 US.
