CampMasters Popcorn Sale

 

To All Popcorn Kernels,

In case you have not heard there will be a delay in the delivery of this year's popcorn for the take order sale.  Campmasters found themselves in a pinch with COVID 19 and their inventory.  We should find out next week when our delivery date will be, I expect it to be the first week in December.

Two quick notes:

  1. Payment for the take order will be due two weeks after delivery.

  2. Payment is now due for Show n Sell

  3. Please let me know if you are a ScoutsBSA unit opting out of prizes.

  4. All prize orders are due now.  We cannot take prize orders into next year, they must be placed as soon as possible.

 

Campmaster's Popcorn is made exclusively for sale by the Boy Scouts of America units. It’s our largest annual fundraiser running mid-August through the end of October. This annual council-wide fundraiser assists local units in raising money for summer resident or day camps, adventures, supplies, registration fees, and advancement badges. Money raised at the council level contributes to valuable programs such as training volunteers to be better Scouts, lower cost of the program for Scouts, and sustaining camp facilities. Purchasing popcorn outside of a retail store (show-and-sell) or ordering popcorn (take-order), is the easiest way to help units raise money. Over 70% of all sales dollars remain here to support our Scouts at the council and the unit level.
