                Circle Ten Council, Boy Scouts of America 
 
HOW THE CAMP CARD SALE WORKS: 
 The Camp Card is designed to help units fund their way to 2015 Camp programs 
 
 This is a Risk Free Unit Sales project where all Scouts can earn their way to Camp, 
Philmont, other activities or simply support unit program or supplies needs 
 
 Each Camp Card will sell for only $5.00 to the general public and will have multiple food, 
service and entertainment discounts for the customer to use throughout the year 
 
 The participating unit will keep 50% commission for each Camp Card sold! 
 
 Commissions from the sales are encouraged to be applied toward directly sending youth to 
Summer Camp programs, but they may be used as the unit committee sees fit

How to implement Camp Card sales for your Unit: 
1. Determine NOW the Camp programs your youth plan to participate in for 2015 
2. Determine the number of active youth in your program 
3. Set a per youth sales goal (number of Camp Cards he/she should sell) 
4. Set an overall unit sales goal 
5. Communicate unit needs clearly with each youth and parent 
a. Explain how the sale of Camp Cards teaches youth the value of earning what they want 
b. Explain exactly where the unit plans to allocate the revenue generated from the sales 
(i.e. Individual youth Camp fees, Uniform, Unit Trailer, etc.) 
6. Communicate Camp Card calendar clearly with all youth and parents 
a. Have a Kickoff for your unit 
b. Have a Turn-In date for money and unsold Camp Cards
