Pin Trading Brings Conversation, Fun, and Memories

Pathfinders at the “Forever Faithful” International Pathfinder Camporee in Oshkosh, Wis., cannot go anywhere without someone approaching and asking if they want to trade pins. The exact number of pins traded is unknown but the passion for trading is very visible.

Steve Durant, with the Timberwolves Pathfinder Club from Westminster, Md., says, “Pin trading allows you to meet new people that you don’t really know even if the relationship only lasts for a few seconds.” Durant came to camporee with 20 pins but has traded for many more.
