Popcorn: The How and Why & Parents Support

Storefront sales are now OPEN! You can see your available shifts in Trails End!

Popcorn sales is a primary fundraising tool for Cub Scouts. More than 70% of the popcorn sale supports your programs and local Scouting! Our goal is to have every Scout participate in the fundraiser by selling at least one item. As a Pack, we'd love to cover most of our operating expenses with popcorn sales so that we don't need to increase dues.


Please take a few minutes to register your scout on Trail's End. Enter parent info first, then Scout's info.

Council: National Capital Area Council

District: Old Dominion
