The Camp Card initiative is designed to help Scouts earn their way to summer resident camp, high adventure or day camp. Units participating in this program will earn 50% commission ($2.50) for each $5 Camp Card they sell. The sale will begin in January 18th and ends April 27th. This timeline gives units 3 months to sell and close out their accounts.
This program is RISK FREE, simply return any unsold cards at settlement on or before April 27.
