          The tradition of camp T-shirts in Crescent Bay Council is thought to have started at Camp Josepho in 1943 when the staff wore special white T-shirts as part of their standard Class B summer uniforms. The tradition continued at Josepho with newly designed staff T-shirts each summer through 1948.  It is unknown if T-shirts were also available for purchase by the campers at Josepho in the 1940's.
          When Camp Emerald Bay re-opened in 1946, the staff, most of which had also served at Camp Josepho during WWII, made their own T-shirts. The first known Emerald Bay T-shirts date to 1947 when both Staff and Camper T-shirts were used. T-shirts have been available at camp continuously ever since, a tradition spanning 70 years and counting.
          During the Crescent Bay and Great Western eras (1947-1984), Emerald Bay Camper & Staff T-shirts were always on white 100% cotton with a version of the camp emblem on the front. In the late 1970's the material changed to cotton/polyester blends.
