2017 Camp Cards
So What Can YOU Do to HELP NOW??
Encourage your Scouts to earn their way to Camp, Adventure and all that is good about Scouting!
With every card sold for $5, the Unit keeps $2.50 that can be applied to the Scouts' program costs. Help your Scouts learn communication skills and self-confidence, take responsibility for their own programs, and earn their way to Camp, High Adventure and beyond!
Get out NOW that the weather is nice- plenty of BIG BOX stores and Malls are empty now that other groups are no longer selling.
Tractor Supply has let the Scouts behind the counters to sell the cards. Bojangles, McDonalds and Dominos have all been very supportive.
Dairy Queen is a great target now that the weather is getting warmer!
