2017 Popcorn Program (this page is being updated)
Face it parents: we grew up in a different time. As kids, nothing was handed to us. We either worked or helped to earn our rewards: money, an activity with friends, or something we wanted. Scouting still believes in and stands for the core value of earning!

Benefits to Your Scout and Family:
  • Teaches Scouts the value & process of setting and working toward goals
  • Gives Scouts a strong sense of accomplishment through recognition
  • Enhances communication, leadership skills and confidence in your Scout
  • Scouts can earn valuable rewards including gift cards and prizes

Sales Goals:

This year, our goal is for each Scout to sell at least $600 worth of popcorn. This should be easy to do by just participating in site sales.  Also, selling at work or door-to-door can be a great way to earn money for the Pack.

Site-Sales: Important! Read this!

To make selling popcorn as easy as possible, I've arranged for several site-sales at local businesses in our area.  To begin with, sign up for a site-sales at the link below.  
  • Scouts should participate in as many site-sales as possible.  I'd like to ask that each Scout sign up for at least two site sales.
