Jamboree Scouts show off their prized patch possessions

Like the dinner menu, a Scout’s favorite patch changes daily at the jamboree.

But this afternoon, I walked around asking Scouts to show off what they consider their coolest patch — for today, at least.

These were mainly national jamboree patches, though one Scout chose a Cub Scout day camp patch “because it has a smiling Bigfoot on it.”

Hey, who’s to say he’s wrong? Here are 13 patches Scouts picked out when I asked for their favorite. Before each photo I’ve listed the Scout’s first name, jamboree troop number, and the council represented on the Scout’s favorite patch:

  1. looking for a shoulder/council patch with “don’t blink” from Dr. Who… anyone know of where this was from

  2. My son got the Cascade Pacific Council’s Dark Horse patch set but didn’t get 4 of the pins. Does anyone know how he can get pins individually for this set without buying the entire pin set?
