Last week the National Boy Scout’s Jamboree took place at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia. The first Jamboree took place in Washington DC in 1937, at the invitation of the president on the national mall. The event which takes place every four years has been held in Virginia since 1981 and will be the last there before it moves to a new permanent home in Beckley, WV .

Among the many events at theĀ  Jamboree is the tradition of trading patches. Scouts will trade patches from their individual packs along with commemorative patches made specifically for the event. Here are some of our favorite ones we have come across.

Never was a Scout (I was lucky enough to be too busy hunting and fishing) but I always envied those patches. Seems like high time for a patch comeback.
