The Badge Patch Carnival (henceforth termed BPC) is a festive event in the event calendar of the Singapore Scout Movement. It is a time where Scouts from all over Singapore would gather to share their badges and scarves, two of the most distinguishable part of a Scout’s uniform. It is not only their pride and joy, but an important cultural heritage of our global Scout Movement: Wherever we are in the world, Scouts will always be recognizable by their scarves and badges. Furthermore, our badges and scarves have evolved to develop a unique Singaporean identity.
The Badge Patch Carnival is, at its heart, a carnival for cultural exchange. It will involve cub scouts, scouts, ventures, rovers and leaders from all over Singapore, and also international scouts. The highlight of the event is actually the exchanging of badges. There will be no monetary transactions involved. Within the carnival itself, there will be more activities.
