Setting the Goal Homework
Always have a goal and a plan! You can show a whole new level of responsibility when you take on paying for your OWN scouting expenses!
The formula for the 20% is very simple: multiply amount of your sales by 0.2 and that's how much will go into your Camping Account(*).
$300 Fee for summer camp will be covered by a $1,500 popcorn sale ($300 x 5 = $1,500).
Always be a great example of a CHEERFUL scout. Show your enthusiasm for reaching your goal to go camping!
Print your personal flyer to communicate your online store details.
Ask your parents to review messages and posts for social media and ask them to help promote it to their friends.
Stay safe! Never give strangers your personal information, such as full name and address.
Wait outside - never enter another stranger’s house, garage, workshop, or car.
As usual, there is a patch for participating in the fundraiser and a pin specific to the Military Donation.
Please see attached flyers (2 pages) for detailed list of prizes and rules on how to select multiple prizes - upto to your total popcorn sale amout.
* Scout's Camping Account Disclaimer
Note that a scout's "Camping Account" is not really a separate bank account. It is a term used for money earmarked in troop's budget to help a scout pay troop fees for camping and membership. It cannot be paid out.
Use of this money is limited to purposes approved by the troop's Committee. Currently approved expenses are: membership dues, camping fees for events organized and/or registered at by the troop leadership.
By participating in troop's fundraisers, scouts can accumulate Camping Account resources for as long as they want - until the target event becomes a reality. In the event scout leaves Troop 84, the remaining Camping Account balance goes back to the troop's general fund to help other scouts (it is not transferrable).
