Swaps, the tradition of Girl Scouts exchanging keepsakes, started long ago when Girl Scouts and Girl Guides first gathered for fun, song, and making new friends.

Originally, swaps were exchanged at national Girl Scout Senior Roundups and referred to as "Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere."

Swaps are still the perfect way for Girl Scouts to meet each other and promote friendship. Each one is a memory of a special event or Girl Scout Sister.

Swaps Basics - Click here for a links with ideas

Swaps should:

    * Tell something about the givers or their
    troop/group. (Girls may include their
    address or email information so others can
    write to them.)

    * Represent the givers' country, community,
    or local Girl Scout council.
