2015 Camp Card sale begins February 14, 2015!

We are accepting Unit Camp Card Orders NOW!


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

A customer's $5 purchase is a gift that keeps on giving . . . for one year.
It's easy.  It's simple.  It's a no-brainer.

In our council's 2nd year of sales, an estimated 250 units in central Indiana will sell Camp Cards, earning $90,000 to pay for summer camp fees and other Scouting equipment.

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

Unit promotional Camp Card posters (picture above) are available!
See your District Camp Card Chair or District Executive.

Promotional postcards were mailed to all registered Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts in Crossroads of America Council in mid-January.

Scouts & Parents:  Talk to your Unit Leader about your unit's participation in the sale.  Scouts may sell these on their own to raise some money for camp or equipment, or units can cohesively sell Camp Cards together as a whole den/patrol or unit.

Want to schedule a storefront sale at a Marsh store?

Have your Unit Camp Card Coordinator ask for availability and schedule these dates through each Store Manager.
Please do not contact the corporate Marsh offices.  Our council has been given a corporate Marsh agreement to support us by units directly scheduling these with individual stores.
The Girl Scout cookie sale coincides with our Camp Card sale, so be mindful that A SCOUT IS COURTEOUS as we both anticipate using similar space on similar dates.
