What is a Camp Card?
A Camp Card is a discount card with discounts from multiple local area businesses. Each card has about 8-10 discounts, some are one-time-use, while others are able to be used multiple times. The Scouts sell these to raise money for them to go to camp and for camping gear.
The council proceeds from the camp card sales will be utilized for camp improvements. We strongly encourage all units to utilize the Scout/unit proceeds for Scout camp. We encourage all Scouts to attend camp.
(Coming soon) The app for Scouts to track and report real-time sales, accept cash and debit/credit cards, track inventory, and more!

Frequently Asked Questions
Check here regularly for questions that have been asked. You may find the answer to your questions already here.
Do I pay for the Camp Cards when I pick them up? No. All payments are due when you are done selling, or by June 5th at the latest. When payments are made, the total due is only the $5 per card. The remaining $5 stays with the unit.
If we use the Trails End App with credit card payments, how do we get our commission? Your unit will need to update the Trails End with the unit banking information and Trails End will debit the unit's account regularly.
If a Scout is not attending camp this year, can he or she still sell Camp Cards to earn money for other things? The main purpose of the Camp Card Fundraiser is to help Scouts pay for camp; however, each unit makes the decision about how the money is used. The unit decides whether Scouts can also use the funds for high adventure outings or other Scouting purposes. Please note that the fund MUST be used for Scouting.
Can we sell both Camp Cards? Yes.
Do we have to use the Trails End App? No. You can sell with or without the app. You can take cash for payments, and if you want to set up your own Square credit card reader using your unit bank account, you can do that, too. If you use the Trails End App, you will not be charged for the credit card fees.
