2010 National Scout Jamboree Patches
The 2010 Jamboree Contingent created four JSPs that drew their inspiration from the landmarks spanning Europe and the ideals we wished to remember as we entered a new century of Boy Scouts of America.
This patch showcased the famous “unknown scout” as he directs William C Boyce through London. Also shown on the patch is Big Ben, the commemorative stone from Brownsea Island (site of the first Scout Camp), the white house of Gilwell Park (Lord Baden Powell’s home gifted to the Scout Association) and a portrait of Lord Baden Powell.
Transatlantic Council was founded as a service by the Boy Scouts of America to the families of American Military personnel stationed in Europe after World War II. We therefore recall the courage of our military with a scout reverently standing before the Omaha Beach American cemetery memorial to the missing servicemen. The patch also shows the crest of Transatlantic Council and images from the Normandy landings. The Normandy landings are remembered every three years by Transatlantic Council by a council-wide camporee on the beaches.
We remember that a Scout is reverent with the image of a scout kneeling in prayer. In front of him are the Parthenon in Athens, St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, and the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, all cities with Transatlantic Council scout groups. History - Boy Scouts of America celebrates 100 years as a positive influence in the world. The history we remember stretches further back than that as a Scout hikes in front of the Colosseum of Rome, the fall of the Berlin Wall and Neuschwanstein castle in Bavaria.

For the OA flap we return to the original service project done by the unknown scout. This variation on the Origins CSP incorporates the Black Eagle Lodge totem. The OA flap may be purchased by non-Order of the Arrow members as part of the fundraiser, but may only be worn on the uniforms of members of Black Eagle Lodge.
The Patron’s JSP wass a special limited edition of the Origin’s JSP where all the yellow, from the border to the neckerchief of Baden Powell, has been been replaced with gold mylar thread. The limited edition comprises just 100 patches. There will be no further Patron’s patches produced. Each Patron’s JSP was sent by John Cass, the 2010 Jamboree Troop’s Scoutmaster, with a letter of authenticity and a personal thank you for supporting out scouts. The sale of each Patron’s patch had a tremendous impact on the quality of the Jamboree experience that the TAC National Jamboree contingent can provide to our youth.
We wanted to say thank you to the volunteers who attended the National Jamboree 2010 as staffers. Whether they instructed at merit badge midway, ran an action center or manned a concession stand, what they did made the Jamboree happen. That is why we also offered a special silver mylar bordered version of the National Jamboree Contingent patch just to TAC Staffers.
