Camp Cards

2020 Camp Card Program

SALE DATES: March 1 – June 30, 2020

Looking for an easy way to raise money for your unit or for your Scouts to earn money to pay for summer camp?

Give Camp Cards a try!

The Camp Card sale is open to all Scouting units (Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing Crews, Exploring Posts, STEM Scouts) in the Garden State Council.

Camp Cards cost only $5 and your unit gets to keep $2.50 from every card sold! The card features two "snap-off" single use coupons from Shop Rite and a possible second major company.  In addition, there is a special access code on the back of each card that allows the user to access up to 10 coupons from an entertainment digital savings site with thousands of local offers. The card offers an estimated savings value of $100.

To obtain Camp Cards please contact your District Executive.

The sale runs from March 1st to June 30th.  There is no upfront cost for the cards, units only pay for what they sell. Since we have a limited supply of Camp Cards available, we need to impose a penalty for returning unsold cards. We do ask if you have unsold cards that you contact your District Executive as soon as possible so the cards can be redistributed to other units before the sale ends.
