Camp Card Coordinator: Make Sure Your Scouts Get to Camp
Each unit should have a Camp Card Coordinator. This person is the

How to Sell Camp Cards
Teach your Scouts how to sell. Create a plan and train your Scouts in
all five methods. This will give you the best results.
1. Door to Door: Take your cards for a trip around the neighborhood. Highlight the great coupons! Sell several cards per house!
2. Show & Sell: Set up a sales booth and sell Camp Cards on the spot. This can be an effective approach in the
right location at the right time, but dont hand your hat on this approach alone. Focus on multiple locations
at the same time. Be sure not to over schedule Scouts.
3. Sell at Card Partners: Some of the vendors on the Camp Card will let your Scouts sell outside their stores.
4. Sell at Work: A great way for Mom and Dad to help their Scout. Have the parents take the cards to work
to ask co-workers to support Scouting.
5. Sell Multiple Cards: Encourage a person to think of benefitting a family by selling one or more card to each
member of the family.
