Swop those badges..!

9th June 2019

Swopping is one of Intercamp’s long-lived traditional activities that takes place almost day and night. You can find Scouts on any place imaginable, laying out badges or other items. Swopping is trading, and on Intercamp that usually means badges and scarfs. Some even swop complete uniforms…

On the Plaza, there’s a special meeting today by the Dutch swopping organization (Nederlandse Vereniging Verzamelaars Scouting Objecten). Patryk (13) from Poland has a large set laid out in front of him. “I like American badges a lot because they are all so big.”
