Boy Scouts have been gathering for jamboree encampments in the Caribbean Islands at periodic intervals since 1952, when the First Caribbean Jamboree was held at Briggs Park, in Kingston, Jamaica. These pages represent a first attempt to illustrate the patches and other memorabilia produced to commemorate those jamborees. While this virtual collection is far from exhaustive, it is hoped that this will provide collectors and those interested in Scouting history a starting point for research on Caribbean Scout Jamboree memorabilia.
I am always interested in trading for items from any of the Caribbean Scout Jamborees, including those shown on these pages. Click here to see a list of my specific needs.
