2023 CAMP CARD SALE
The Suwannee River Area Council is pleased to announce the return of our Council-wide Camp Card Sale for 2023. We had banner years in 2021 and 2022 and look forward to earning our way through our scouting program in 2023. Our 2022 sale ended raising $31,965 for scouts in the Suwannee River Area Council. Our highest earning unit in 2022 was Pack 201, who raised $3,125 with only 6 registered sellers! We hope that every scout and unit will take advantage of this opportunity to pay your own way through their scouting career.
To register your unit’s commitment for the 2023 Sale:
The 2023 Camp Card Sale will begin February 9th, at roundtable. Camp Cards are coupon cards full of discounts for businesses in your local area that your Scout can sell for $5 and keep up to 50% of the commission in their Scout Account.
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. Even if your unit hasn’t decided yet or is not interested in managing the sale for your families, you can still participate!
We also want to be sure that your unit participates in this opportunity and so would once again like to offer multiple versions of the card, representing all of our counties.
This program is completely RISK FREE; simply return any unsold cards at settlement on or before April 28, 2023.
Camp Scholarships Available AGAIN!
Every time a scout sells 25 cards, they will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a camp experience! Drawings to include one FREE scholarship to each of the following: Cub Family Weekend (up to four people), Cub Scout Day Camp, Scouts BSA Summer Camp, and Scouts BSA Winter Camp.
Scholarships are not transferable, have no cash value, and cannot be combined with other individuals. They may only be redeemed at one of the SRAC events listed above during the 2023 calendar year.
All this and much more, is available for units and families selling the 2023 Camp Card! Please look forward to the 2023 Leader’s Guide being released. Until then, review the 2022 Camp Card Sale Leader’s Guidebook to learn more about this exciting opportunity!
