Swaps is a Girl Scout tradition to exchange keepsakes that started when Girl Scouts and Girl Guides first gathered for fun, songs and making new friends at a national Girl Scout Senior Roundup in the 1950s.
Swaps are still the perfect way for Girl Scouts to meet each other and promote friendship. Swaps usually tell something about the givers or their group and represent the givers’ country, community or local Girl Scout council.
We get a lot of requests on Facebook for Girl Scout troops to exchange swaps with other troops from around the country. If you’re interested, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org we can match your troop with another troop. For ideas on swaps visit our Pinterest page.
