Sell Camp Cards ... and go to camp for FREE!

Your neighbors want to help you go to camp. Great value for your customers – great fun for you! Boy Scouts only need to sell 180 cards and Cub Scouts only need to sell 80 cards to go to camp for FREE! Do you want to go to Jubilee for free?? If you sell 40 cards, you will earn 1 free Jubilee pass and your unit will earn $100 in commissions, which will send 3 more Scouts to Jubilee for free! Camp card sales are not cumulative. Cub Scouts must sell 120 cards to go to camp and Jubilee for free, and Boy Scouts must sell 220 cards to go to camp and Jubilee for free. 

Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

The Boy Scout that sells the highest number of camp cards will get FREE admission to the Scout Night at the Omaha Storm Chasers event on June 20th! Not only will he get in for free, but he will also get to throw out the first pitch! The Cub Scout that sells the highest number of camp cards will get FREE admission to the Scout Night at the Omaha Storm Chasers event on June 20th AND gets to lead the crowd in singing "Take me out to the Ball Game"!

Units are responsible for submitting individual Scout sales information when you turn in the money and unsold cards at the May Roundtable.

What are Camp Cards?
Camp cards is a program meant to help get more kids to go to camp – for FREE! The purpose is to alleviate financial stress from families and units so that more kids can go to camp and receive the unparalleled experiences that Scout camp is known for. Revenue from the camp card sales is directed back into the Mid-America Council camping programs.

The camp card offers are tailored to one of four regions: SW Iowa, NW Iowa, Nebraska, and Omaha-metro.

You asked for it and we're giving it to you. You want the camp card to have value, and we have brought in top notch vendors this year. View a complete list of vendors below.

Let's Do the Math
When you sell camp cards, your unit earn 50% commission. That equals $2.50 per card sold.

If a Cub Scout was selling camp cards simply to pay his own way to camp, it would take 40 cards to earn enough commission to go to Cub Scout Day Camp and 44 cards to be enough to pay for Cub Scout Resident Camp. BUT, if that Cub Scout sells 80 cards, he will earn free camp and his unit will earn $200 in commission, PLUS go to camp for FREE! The Mid-America Council will pay for his camp*. Additionally, the unit keeps the commission.

Sign Up for Camp Card Sales is Now Closed!Due to an overwhelming response to the camp card program, and the addition of Jubilee, we are extending our sales to April 30, 2014. Cards will be distributed at the March Roundtables and all money and unsold cards MUST be turned in at the May Roundtables. Anyone that already paid for camp in full AND sells enough camp to go for free, will be refunded.
