Camp Cards






What is a Camp Card?
$5 Camp Card is a discount card that can be used immediately at Kroger's to get $5 off a purchase of $50 or more. This card also has discounts to many other local companies.

Why?
The pack needs additional funds to support our programs as our annual popcorn sale raised less money than we had expected. Scouts can use their portion to pay for upcoming summer programs like Twilight Camp or any Scout related expense such as future re‐charters, Scout uniform...

When?
‐ February 21st ‐ cards distributed to Scouts and sales can begin. Finish May 8th or sooner
‐ Earlier selling is better than later.
‐ Sell multiple to cards to families that eat food! Instant savings at return!

What is expected of scout parents / sponsors?
We would like to distribute 10 cards to each scout /parent to sell locally, neighbors, parents work, individual events.
‐ Parents will sign receipt for 10 cards and will be responsible to return unsold cards or funds from sales.
‐ Additional cards can be obtained after first group of 10 are sold
‐ Group sales will be done also at Kroger and possibly Bass Pro.

Risk to Pack and Parents 0%
(Cards not sold will be returned to District)

Camp Card sells for $5 and the Scouts get $2.50 each to add to their scout account


Here is a breakdown of how many cards are needed for various scout activities:

Individual Scout Expenses   Cost  Cards@$1.50
Twilight Camp                $65     43
Weblos Summer Camp          $125     83
Parent & Pal Weekend         $65     43
Uniform                      $35     23

Recharter Fee                $15     10





The cards are available in packs of 10 from your den leaders.  We will also have several opportunities to sell them in front of the Sachse Kroger store. (We are still working out the details on which dates) For those times a coordinator will have plenty of cards to sell.  You can return any cards you do not sell,  as long as the Kroger coupon has *not* been removed.

Money set aside for the use of scouts will remain available to use throughout the rest of the charter year (next February). This should give plenty of opportunities to use the funds that your scout raises. (The money can also be used to help pay for the recharter fees next year.)


In talking with other packs on selling the cards, they can go pretty quick! Talking to family and friends will be the easiest, going door to door is optional.  Selling multiple cards is encouraged and easy: ask how many times they go to Kroger in a month, and if they would be willing to buy that number of cards.


We have until the first of May to sell as many cards as possible.  Our ultimate goal will be for each scout to sell 43 cards to make it to Twilight camp this summer!


Linda and Ken Fisher will be heading up the Camp Card efforts, so look for additional information from them!


Thanks for all your support!
