Camp Card Sale

 

 










HOW THE CAMP CARD SALE WORKS: 


The Blue Ridge Council is proud to introduce the 2019 Camp Card Sale to help Scouts earn their way to the adventures of Scouting.  Scouts have the opportunity to help themselves attend one of many events offered at Camp Old Indian and the Blue Ridge Council. These adventures include Summer Camp, Cub Resident Camp, Cub Day Camp, NYLT Training and Cub Family Camping.  Units who participate in the Camp Card Sale can earn up to 60% commission.  The 2019 Sale will run from February 1st– April 26th giving units over 2 months to sell!

- With vendors like Dick's Sporting Goods, Ace Hardware, Ingles Markets, Tractor Supply, and Frugal Backpacker the Camp Card more than PAYS FOR ITSELF! 

- Commissions from the sales are encouraged to be applied toward directly sending youth to Summer Camp programs, but they may be used as the unit committee sees fit.
