CampMasters Popcorn Sale

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.
