Camp Cards 2017

If you'd like to raise some money for yourself for Summer Camp or High Adventure (like Sea Base, Philmont, or even the Jamboree), consider participating in the CAMP CARDS program, which was set up by the Cradle of Liberty Council.  See details below and talk to Assistant Scoutmaster Joe K if you want cards or have questions.

  • What is it?  It's a card that you sell to people so they can get shopping and activity discounts at certain places.

  • What does it cost?  You sell the card for $5.  You get $2.50 credit in your Troop 98 account for each card you sell (provided you turn in the money!).
  • How do I sign up?  See ASM Joe K to pick up the number of cards you'd like to sell at a Troop Meeting.  You are responsible to Troop 98 for $5 times the number of cards you take!  You may return unsold cards but if you lose them you are responsible for their value.
  • Name entered into a weekly prize drawing for each 25 cards sold and entered once again for a final prize drawing (prizes are gift cards and camperships to Summer Camp).
  • What exactly are the cards good for?  Each card has several discounts.  Some are one-time use (you tear off a coupon) and others are multi-use (you can use the discount over and over).  Here are the exact discounts:


ACME - Save $5 off a purchase of $50 or more

Philly Pretzel Factory - $5 off any large pretzel tray

Modell's - Save 15% on regular and sale price merch and save 10% throughout the year

About Fundraising in Troop 98...

Traditionally, Troop 98 has not carried out fundraising, although we make available to Scouts programs like this on an optional basis (also popcorn sales in the Fall).  Some parents have asked if we can do fundraising.  The answer is yes, but we ask that one or more parents volunteer to lead the effort and make sure we operate within strict BSA fundraising rules.  If you'd like to help, please contact the Scoutmaster.  Also, if the cost of Scouting ever represents a hardship to you, or you know of someone else for whom it does, please contact the Scoutmaster.
