HERE ARE OTHER WAYS SCOUTS CAN EARN THEIR WAY TO CAMP!

CAMP CARD

This program is RISK FREE, units/Scouts may simply return any unsold/undamaged cards by June 13, 2014.The Katahdin Area Council is requesting that all units in the North Star, Hancock, Penquis, Penobscot Valley, Waldo, and Washington districts participate in the sale to make sure all our Scouts have the opportunity to go to camp this summer.  The 2013 sale was a huge success putting nearly $40,000 back in the hands of the units to send kids to camp.  The 2014 sale is expected to return more money to the local units; we are adding to and improving last year’s card everyday!

Goal of the Initiative:Simply Put: We want our Scouts to go to camp. In these challenging economic times, we don’t want family finances to keep a Scout from attending the camp of their choice. Scouts will also learn an important value, earning their own way.
