For a Scout, it can be the way to camp! For an Explorer it could mean even more opportunities!
Camp (or Character) Cards is a fundraising program to help Scouts & Explorers earn their way to any of the Council's summer or day camp programs in 2018. For $5, each card provides $100+ in value with coupon specials from area businesses offering Dining, fast food, Redwing discounts, recreation (bowling) and more. Sale ends June 1st. The program provides a benefit to the individual units and helps the Council in providing programs.
Units participating in the program can earn commissions up to 55% of the cards retail cost. The remaining will support the Council in order to help make improvements to the Council's three Camps. The sale begins February 1st and units will have until June 1st to close out their accounts.
These cards are a great value for your customers also. The $5 off a Mark's Pizza alone should help you sell multiple cards to each customer. Ask them "How many times do you and your family order pizza each month (year)?" Offer to sell them that many pizza coupons. The same goes for the other offers, Oil Changes (Monro Muffler), Haircuts (Total Styles), Dick's Sporting Goods, will save you twice the cost of the card itself, on the card. Customers can use the cards as a replacement for cash and their dollars will support scouting.
Units may choose from one of the three commission opportunities at the beginning of the sale.
The Value of Selling Camp (or Career)Cards:
Participating in the sale of Cards allows each Scout or Explorer to directly fund their way to various Camps or any program offered locally, regionally, or Nationally.
