  • Unit Charter must be paid in full and all volunteers be Youth Protection Compliant.

  • Unit must not have any outstanding unpaid Popcorn balance. 

  • Popcorn and Camp Card product sales are approved council fundraisers.  All other unit fundraisers must be approved. Your unit committee must complete and submit a Unit Fundraising Application to both your charter partner and council for approval.  

Why Sell Camp Cards?

While the Camp Card discounts are a great plus, what you are really selling is character and a better community. What you are really doing is making sure every Scout can benefit from summer camp. The Camp Card sale is designed to help Scouts earn funds to offset the cost of their Scouting experience. Units participating in this program will earn 50% commission ($2.50) for each $5 Camp Card they sell. The sale begins in March with a settlement date in late April.
