Each year, the Cradle of Liberty Council will be providing a unit fundraising opportunity through the Camp Card Program. These $5 discount cards are sold by Scouts, with 50% of the proceeds retained by the unit for use toward camp and other Scouting activities.
To date, Scouting units in Cradle of Liberty earned $437,000 for these purposes!
The customers purchasing cards have the opportunity to save money on their regularly purchases, the vendors listed see new or increased shopping from customers and our Scouting units receive support for their Scouts to attend camp and other activities.
Inquiries about the Camp Card Program can be directed to your district’s volunteer Camp Card Chair, your district professional staff members or to email@example.com
Through partnerships with area businesses, our 2016 Camp Card will feature discount offers from the following vendors:
As in past years, two versions of the card will be offered, one featuring a discount from Shoprite and the other from Acme. All other discounts are available on both versions of the card.
Enter into one of our ten weekly drawings for every 25 Camp Cards an individual Scout sells. Each drawing will have four winners with prizes ranging from Amazon gift cards from $25 to $75 to a 50% off campership to a Cradle of Liberty Council summer camp. All entries from the weekly drawings will then be put into a Super Drawing at the end of the sale for even larger prizes!
To enter into a weekly drawing, sell at least 25 Camp Cards, complete a coupon on the Scout Sales Kit, and submit it to your unit coordinator with payment (unit keeps the 50% commission). Unit coordinators will turn the coupons and payments into the council either at the office or through District Camp Card Chairs or staff members.
Scouts can be entered for every 25 cards they sell, and can enter multiple times each week. Entries are due to the Cradle of Liberty Council office by Wednesdays at 5 p.m. to be considered for the Thursday drawings. Entries received after Wednesdays at 5 p.m. will be included in the next drawing.
