2022 CAMP CARDS

The Camp Card initiative is designed to help units and their members to raise funds to support all of their Scouting adventures including membership fees, summer camp, high adventure trips, and more.  The Camp Card is a “discount card” that offers deals at area businesses. Powered by the Entertainment Book, there are discounts all across the U.S.  For just $10, that makes the purchase of the card a no-brainer and Scouts earn $5 for each card they sell!

The Entertainment Digital Coupon Book will be back in 2022.  We are also exploring ways your Scouts can potentially sell Camp Cards online in addition to in-person.

The Camp Card is a “discount card” that offers deals at area businesses to the purchaser. Several companies have offered generous one-time and multiple use discounts that makes the sale of this card a no-brainer.  The purchase price of a Camp Card is $10.00, and participating Scouts will earn 50% for each card they sell!
