Our annual unit-level spring fundraising sale was another success!
The annual spring Camp/Discount Card sale allows Scout units to raise funds to pay for their summer Scouting program. "Camp Cards" are discount cards sold for $5 each to the general public. Unit commission was 50% on each card ($2.50). Funds earned from this fundraiser may be used for any Scouting or Exploring purpose -- to purchase equipment such as tents and backpacks, summer camp and activity fees, high adventure trip, uniform, handbooks, membership fees, etc. Camp/Discount Cards are meant to complement, not take the place of, popcorn sales in the fall.
How Does My Unit Get Started?
1. Choose one adult to serve as the Camp/Discount Card Coordinator.
2. Through your unit committee, decide HOW your unit will sell Camp/Discount Cards.
3. Order your Camp/Discount Cards.
4. Track your Scout's/Explorer's cards.
5. Return unsold cards and payment to any council service center by May 1, 2017.
More information coming soon on how units can pay online this year using a credit card!
