What is swap trading
SWAP stands for Share With a Pal. Be a part of our Swap Sensation and have your group start collecting SWAP Pins from around the country. Our new group program will make it more economical to SWAP often!
Here's what you do:
Make hat pin swaps with your group. Design your own or make one of ours.
Put the child's first name, city, state, age and troop number on each swap. You can do this by gluing a small piece of paper on the back or by making a small flag to hang from the pin.
For each set of SWAPs that you make (up to 20), you will need a large self-addressed manila envelope (approx. 9" x 12", with 3 stamps on it ($1.26 postage). Children may have their SWAPs sent c/o their teachers or leaders. Your address will never be used for any other purpose. For more information read our privacy statement.
Kings Park, NY 11754
Please note: If you do not send a self-addressed stamped envelope, you will not receive SWAPs in return.
