Scout memorabilia collecting is the hobby and study of preserving and cataloging Boy Scout and Girl Scout items. Since collecting depends on the interests of the individual collector, the depth and breadth of each collection varies widely. The collecting of Scout memorabilia likely began when Scouting was founded in Britain in 1907, although in those early years many did not think to save their items, so many early Scouting items have been lost to time. Early Scouters often sewed awards they had earned, as well as insignia they had traded with other Scouts, directly to woolen campfire blankets.
The Order of the Arrow has a long history of creating patches and other memorabilia for its members. Many organizations around the world are dedicated to accumulating and disseminating information on various Scouting memorabilia.
