Camp Card Fundraiser
Are you looking for a great fundraiser to make sure each Scout can earn his way to camp this summer?
We have the answer for you. Camp Cards is only new to Scouting in the past several years and this is the first year that the Greater Niagara Frontier Council has presented this program to Scout families of Western New York. Many Scouts across the Country have been participating and the excitement of Camp Cards has been building. It's now here!
Camp Cards are ready for you to pick up!
Camp Card Basics
Camp Cards are discount coupon cards that have significant value (over $100) and are sold for only $5 per card. Each Scout unit will receive 40% commission for every card sold, which means that $2 will be the unit commission. This is a great way for Scouts to earn their way to camp by selling Camp Cards to family, friends, neighbors, teachers, and even set up displays at store fronts much like a "Show and Sell" popcorn campaign. The best part is there is ZERO risk! Unit leaders simply return what they do not sell and no money is due until the unsold cards are returned.
Each unit leader will set a goal and sign out a number of cards they think they can sell. The leader then distributes the Camp Cards to the families of their Scout unit and provides good positive communications and constant follow up and encouragement to the families.
Once the sale is complete, Scouts turn in money they've collected and any unsold cards to the unit leader. The unit leader brings back all the unsold cards and makes the final payment at the end of the sale.
GNFC Scout units do not have to attend a GNFC summer camp in 2014 to participate.
