2017 Camp Card sales are Now On!

Posted on Mar 17 2017 - 12:22am

The 2017 Boy Scout Camp Card sales season started a couple of weeks ago and we want as many Troop 1001 scouts to participate as possible between now and the end of the sales drive on May 9th.  Selling camp cards is an easy and risk free way for our scouts to earn monies to help pay for their activities with the Troop.  Scouts earn 50% of all camp cards sales revenues they collect, with proceeds being allocated to their individual accounts where they can be used to pay for summer camp, campout fees, annual dues, high adventure fees, etc.   Any unsold cards can be turned in at the end of the sales drive with no obligation to pay (though all unsold cards MUST be returned to Randy Lawson no later than May 8th.)
