What Are Camp Cards?
The Camp Card FUNdraiser is a fundraising opportunity to help get more kids to go to camp – for FREE! The “Camp Card” is designed to help Scouts and units earn their way to camp. We hope the camp card fundraiser will help alleviate financial stress from families and units so that more kids can go to camp and receive unparalleled experiences. Units participating in this program can earn up to 40% commission ($2.00) for each $5 Camp Card they sell. Revenue from the camp card sales is directed back into the Central Florida Council camping programs.
The sale will begin at February Roundtable (3rd Monday (Three Rivers District) or 3rd Thursday- all other Districts) and ends April 29, 2017.
The camp card offers are tailored to Community Partners in Central Florida.
