2014 Camp Card sale is almost over!

Crossroads of America's first Camp Card sale ends April 25, 2014.

DISCOUNT CARDS!

We call them "Camp Cards" because youth may use these funds as a way to pay for summer camp, although funds can be used for any Scouting purpose.

Districts and units are encouraged to participate.  Profits earned for each district will apply towards the year-end district finance objective for the Journey to Excellence Award.

Camp Cards are meant to complement, not take the place of, popcorn sales in the fall.


As of April 15, 2014, we have almost 200 unit orders from all over the council, accounting for over 58,000 in Camp Cards ordered!


We are STILL taking initial orders and additional orders!
