Camp Emerald Bay Pirate Program

          The Good Camper program, which had existed at Camp Emerald Bay since the late 1920's, was replaced by the Pirate Program around 2000. The program features four different levels based on the number of years at camp: Brigand for 1st year; Buccaneer for 2nd year; Pirate for 3rd year and Anchorman for 4 or more years. All the levels share certain requirements like hiking, swimming, and Aquacade participation as well as archery, canoeing, endemic plant identification and others. As the levels increase, so do the performance levels necessary to meet the requirements.
          Brigand and Buccaneer patches feature the "Crazy Pirate" while Pirate level features the "Crossed Arms" mascot. Anchorman level does not have a patch, instead being represented by a pin showing a skull and crossed bones superimposed on an anchor. 
          The patches use the traditional White-Blue-Yellow background colors first used in the late 1940's.
