Calling all Scouts, Parents and Leaders!
Here is your chance to earn your own way in Scouting by participating in the annual Camp Card Sale. Camp Cards are coupon cards full of discounts to businesses in your local area that your Scout can sell for $5 and keep 50% of the commission.
The purpose of selling Camp Cards is to allow Scouts to earn money towards their Scouting program. This could be for unit campouts, a new uniform, annual registration or unit fees, activities, summer camp, or more. To learn more about how to participate and to see what’s going to be on the cards, join us for an AWESOME Camp Card Kick-Off! Everyone is invited! Leaders, parents, and scouts. Even if your unit hasn’t decided yet or is not interested in managing the sale for your families, you can still participate!
