2018 Camp Cards are a Huge Success

2018 Camp Cards are a Huge Success

Welcome to the 2018 Camp Card Sale!   Selling Camp Cards is an easy no risk way to teach Scouts the value of earning their way. Going to camp is the highlight of every Scout’s year. Shouldn’t they understand the value of that experience?   This sale plays an essential role in allowing you to generate the funds for your Unit, and to send your Scouts to camp this summer.   Imagine being able to pay for a MAJOR portion of what your Unit does for an entire year with Camp Card profits.
