This is an important Scouting tradition, promoting interaction between members of different Contingents and expanding Scouts’ knowledge of the breadth of Scouting.
Remember to be fair and friendly and apply the rule of “one badge for one badge”, "like for like" and honest trading.
Help others Scouts in your Troop with their collections.
Enjoy the conversation of finding out where the badge you are swapping is from [especially District/Region badges].
Badges are not to be sold except in authorised shops, Contingent/Sub Camp headquarters and other authorised locations.
The most popular swap items are usually District and Contingent Badges. Some like to swap Name Tapes and even Troop Scarves.
