WHAT ARE CAMP CARDS

The Camp Card Initiative is designed to help units and their members earn their way to summer resident camp, high adventure base, day camp or other fun summer events.

The Camp Card is a “discount card” that offers deals at area businesses to the purchaser. Several companies have offered generous one-time and multiple use discounts that makes the sale of this card a no-brainer.  The purchase price of a Camp Card is $10.00, and participating Scouts will earn 50% for each card they sell!

HOW DOES MY UNIT GET STARTED?

1. Choose one adult to serve as the Camp/Discount Card Coordinator and complete the short Unit Enrollment Form. You’ll receive updates and information as they become available.

2. Through your unit committee, decide HOW your unit will sell Camp/Discount Cards.

3. Order your Camp/Discount Cards online.

4. Pick up your cards and hold a unit kickoff to distribute them to your Scouts.  Set a goal for each Scout and track your Scout’s cards.

5. Return unsold cards and make your final payment at the Scout Achievement Center by May 15th.

More information will be available via the Unit Camp Card Guidebook (to be published soon)
