2024 CAMP CARD SALE
The Suwannee River Area Council is pleased to announce the return of our Council-wide Camp Card Sale for 2024. Units have been very successful selling these cards. Through working with local businesses to have them participate and then allowing scouts to sell in front of the store. Some scouts have even reported they were able to earn enough to cover registration and camp fees for the entire year. Last year, units sold $49,365 in Camp Cards, earning almost $25,000 in support for themselves or their unit. This was a huge increase from just over $32,000 from 2022, and we hope to make this year even better! 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 2024 Sale:
The 2024 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 $10 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 May 3, 2024.
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.

As an extra incentive, on top of the other incentives discussed above, the Suwannee River Area Council is also offering per card incentives to all scouts that hit the 100 and 200 card sold mark.
