Camp Card Weekly News & Updates
Congratulations! Your unit is on its way to funding Scouting Adventures. Whether it's for summer camp, equipment, or that special high-adventure trip, Camp Cards can help your unit meet its fundraising goals.

Online sign-up for units to participate is now closed, but your unit can still participate by contacting your district Camp Card volunteer or professional, emailing campcards@colbsa.org, or by stopping by the resource center in Wayne.

Volunteers and staff members in your area stand ready to help. Please let them know if you need more cards, need to turn-in funds and "Strive for 25" entries, or have any questions. You'll also be receiving this newsletter weekly throughout the fundraiser, which ends on June 1.
"Strive for 25" Winners - Week #1
  • Z. Gender - Troop 100, Roosevelt District
  • T. Larsson - Troop 3, Washington District
  • S. Miller - Troop 98, Baden-Powell District
  • J. Richards - Troop 63, Conestoga District
  • J. Updike - Troop 16, General Nash District

Great work, Scouts! Unit coordinators for the above units will be mailed the $25 gift cards next week. Please present this recognition to the Scout as soon as possible at the next gathering of your pack, troop or crew. Explain that this recognition was earned by selling 25 Camp Cards and submitting a Strive for 25 entry, and encourage all your Scouts to continue to sell and submit their entries for the remainder of the fundraiser to be eligible for recognition as well (the last drawing is on May 31).

Plenty of Weekly Drawings Left!

Scouts can enter into one of the weekly drawings for every 25 Camp Cards they sell. Each drawing will have five winners who will each receive a $25 Amazon gift card. All entries from the weekly drawings will then be put into a Super Drawing at the end of the sale for even larger prizes.

Entries are due by Wednesdays at 5 PM to be considered for the Thursday drawings. 

Getting More Cards & Submitted Money/Strive for 25 Entries
Here are the local district money turn-in/card pick-up locations available throughout the fundraiser (you may go to any location convenient for you, even if it's not in your home district):


Additionally, units may also turn-in money and get more cards at the Firestone Scouting Resource Center during business hours:

1485 Valley Forge Road, Wayne, PA 191087
Monday to Friday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM

Please don't hesitate to reach out to your district volunteer or professional if you need to make arrangements to get more cards.

When you meet with a district volunteer or staff member, they will have a Card/Money Transfer Form to account for any transactions of cards, money, and Strive for 25 entries. These triplicate forms allow for your unit, the district and council to keep proper records. Transfer forms will be recorded at the council office where a running invoice will be kept for each unit. To ensure that all records and invoices are accurately maintained, units are asked only to receive/return with a district/council representative and not with other units.
Selling at SEPTA Stations
Through a partnership with SEPTA, our Scouts are able to sell at a select number of stations in our area through May 31. If your unit would like to sell Camp Cards at one of the locations (listed on the website), please email your request to campcards@colbsa.org with the date(s) and station(s) you are requesting. If approved (the date/location is not already spoken for) you will receive a copy of the SEPTA permit that must be displayed while Scouts are selling.

Tip of the Week
Scouts with a goal are typically more motivated and successful. Do your Scouts have a sales goal?
