2014 Popcorn Program
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:

Below are the goals you and your Scout should strive for...
  • $350.00 per Scout - Tiger Cubs
  • $350.00 per Scout - Wolf Cubs
  • $350.00 per Scout - Bear Cubs
  • $350.00 per Scout - Webelos

Ways to Sell:                                                                                          

Take Orders
  • The Scout with his Akela goes door to door with a Take Order Form.  Take Order Forms will provided during the Popcorn Kickoff
