Patch Trading at Camp Eastman
Patch collecting and trading has been a long-standing and spirited tradition at Camp Eastman as well as throughout Scouting. Recently, patches donated to CEDA were combined with donations from the South East Iowa Patch Traders Association and the Mississippi Valley Council to create trading packages for the youth attending the last Scouting Jamboree. Each Scout received a set of 40 to 50 patches to take to the Jamboree to trade with Scouts from across the country.
To help those just starting out in the hobby, and also enthusiasts looking to complete their collections, the Southeast Iowa Patch Traders Association has put together checklists of the various patch collections relevant to Camp Eastman and the Mississippi Valley Council.
