What: The Root Beer Float Sale is an annual camping fundraiser held twice a year. Your unit is needed to help man a station at your local Kroger store. Scouts will make and sell tasty Root Beer Floats at the entrance of the stores.
Why: This fundraiser helps continue the awesome camping programs in the Dan Beard Council. 100% of the money raised at the sale goes straight into camp projects and camperships. Camperships are need-based scholarships that are given to Scouts to attend any DBC summer camp that may not have been able to attend otherwise. By working this fundraiser, you are helping to guarantee that all Scouts, regardless of finances, are able to attend camp.
By working this sale, Scouts can earn service hours for rank, camperships, or other requirements. Your troop or pack will also benefit by promoting Scouting and camping in your local community.
When: Saturday, June 12 and Saturday, September 11.
Time: 11am - 5pm
Where: At the Kroger store of your choice! Every Kroger store located within the council is available to be part of the sale.
Who: Any troop or pack may volunteer to man a store. Each store should be covered with 2-3 adults and 2-3 Scouts. Your unit may cover the store throughout the day in several shifts.
Sign-Up: In order to avoid having more than one unit at the same store, please make sure and let us know what store you will be helping at. To have your unit be a part of this year's sale, please contact:
