Building a strong annual program is a great way to keep your Scouts active and interested in the Scouting program. Funding your program is equally important, as Scouts benefit from paying their own way.
 
The council's suggested money-earning project is the annual popcorn sale. With a little imagination, many units have raised sizable amounts of money for unit accounts. Units need a secure and stable source of income that a strong popcorn sale can provide. Monies raised by units have been used to cover the cost of badges and advancement, special events, and camp fees.
 
The popcorn sale also benefits the council as a whole by helping us serve volunteer leaders and members by providing better programs and camping facilities.

  • Scout's can earn their way to camp for free.
