Yep, Firecrafter was an early camp program like OA or tribe of Mic O Say. 

The council incorporated OA but didn't get rid of Firecrafter. Great program. Challenging and fun. Lotsa history in the council.

Its worth it to take a look at the link and browse around in that site!


Firecrafter, 1980

This is a Webelos Camper award.  It is a part of a Boy Scout program run by the Firecrafters within Crossroads of America Council.  All council cub scout day camps  allow each first year camper to earn the patch  Some of the requirements include memorizing the Scout Oath, Law, and Firecrafter slogan, setting up a tent, attend five days of camp, cooking a meal at camp and going on a short hike.  The program started in the mid to late 1970's as a way to encourage webelos to transition to Boy Scouts.  At Camp Belzer hundreds of boys earn the badge every year.  A second year Webelos can earned the Webelos FIrelight Award.
