Camp Cards

Camp Card Program

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.

The Camp Card Program features:

  • No up-front cost to units
  • Minimal risk to units
  • 50% commission for units ($2.50/card)
  • More than $50 value in discounts on each card
  • Enables units to ensure all Scouts have the opportunity to attend camp

Inquiries about the Camp Card Program can be directed to your district’s volunteer Camp Card Chair, your district professional staff members or to

Strive For 25

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.

Camp Card Program Tips & Techniques

Where and how Scouts sell Camp Cards is really only limited by the imagination. In past sales Scouts have sold in all sorts of locations. Brainstorm some ideas with your leaders and Scouts, using the list below to get started!


  • After Church
  • Door to Door
  • Parent’s Workplace
  • Gas Station
  • Sports Events
  • Unit Blitz Events
  • Neighbors
  • Public Transit Stops/Stations
  • Home Improvement Stores
  • Pharmacies
  • Convenience Stores
  • Department Stores
  • “Big Box” Stores
  • Diners & Restaurants


The packs, troops, and crews that have been the most successful in the Camp Card Program used the following best practices for managing their sale:


  • Use spreadsheet available under the resources section to track the cards issues and returned by each of your Scouts
  • Have each Scout set a goal and relate it to their summer camp costs. Use visual charts to track each Scouts’ progress and inspire competition.
  • Set unit camp card calendar with distribution dates, unit sale events, and date for Scouts to return cards and money to the Unit Coordinator.
  • Check in weekly with all Scouts by collecting money for sold cards and issuing/moving cards as necessary. Keep track of the unit’s overall progress including cards sold and cards with each Scout.
  • Regularly turn in your Stive for 25 entries and money for sold cards at one of our collection locations or at the Firestone Scout Resource Center.
