The “Camp Card” is designed to help Scouts and their families earn their own way to Cub Day Camp, BSA Summer Camp, weekend Campouts, or even to purchase camping gear. Packs and Troops participating will earn 50% commission ($2.50) for each $5 Camp Card sold! 

Low Risk - The Camp Card sales program is virtually RISK FREE to your Scout and his unit — the sale begins after the District’s Kickoff on March 1st and you simply return any unsold cards to your unit leader by your unit settlement date.

High $ Value & Easy to Sell! …. All 2017 cards will include great breakoffs …. plus, many more valuable reusable discounts! All of the camp cards are district specific and have a savings value that exceeds their sale price! It is almost like trading $10 and $20 notes for a $5 note. With your help and coaching, your son will learn valuable life-time communication skills that will help him be better Prepared. For Life. Your son can learn the value of earning his own way and working towards a goal!

WIN-WIN-WIN-WINfor our Communities, Families, Scouts, and Scouting in the Coastal Georgia Council!

  • WIN!   Shopping at local businesses provides jobs and a tax base for our community.
  • WIN!   Scout families want an easy, low risk fundraiser to help finance their Scouting experience.
  • WIN!   Scouts learn valuable leadership, goal setting, and communication skills.  It provides a young man a chance to share his Scouting experiences with others in the community.
  • WIN!   The camp card offers a Win-Win opportunity to help other people save money, build Scout confidence, support many local businesses, and help “Keep the Campfires Burning” financially in the Coastal Georgia Council!

For many Scouts, the difference between an average program and a great Scout experience is simply the money earned from their Camp Card participation. Of course, money alone does not make a Scouting program good, but it CAN help provide resources to supplement a quality planned program.  The Camp Card is offered for a $5 donation, and most of the offers can be redeemed until December 31st of 2017.  

Many units earn in excess of $1,000 in commissions to support their programs.
