Popcorn Fundraiser Program
Let's face it, parents--we grew up in a different time. As kids, nothing was handed to us. We either worked for 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!  Our yearly Popcorn Sale allows the boys to earn money for the Pack, which is then invested into developing and maintaining the highest quality program for them.  Not to mention, it's a lot of fun--and can offer a healthy bit of friendly competition, too!

Benefits to Your Scout and Family:
  • Teaches Scouts the value & process of setting and working toward goals
