Fake 2011–12 Winter Camper DGr Blk R Yel dome Red Unauthorized; “Winter Camper”; design of 2011–2012 patch

A fake Broad Creek Winter Camper patch with a 1957 date began circulating in approximately 2004. There was a line of women’s fashion clothing that included shirts with sewn-on patches, most of which had designs and text similar to that found on Boy Scout patches. These patches, removed from a couple of those shirts, have a design taken from the 1974–75 Winter Camper patch. The fakes are easily identifiable: Baltimore Area Council did not issue Winter Camper patches until the 1960s, and the fake patches are smaller than normal round Scout patches.

In 2012, a fake of the regular patch was made with the text ”Winter Camper” instead of “Weekend Camper”.
