CAMP CARD PROGRAM

2024 Monmouth Council Camp Card Program

 

WHAT IS THE CAMP CARD PROGRAM ?

The Camp Card sale is offered through Monmouth Council and provides a no-risk opportunity for all Scouts to sell discount Merchant cards to help them earn their way to camp. While units are encouraged to use the Camp Card Sale to help their scouts pay their way to summer camp, units may use the camp card sale to raise funds for any scouting adventures, unit activities, or unit operations and equipment. The 9thpoint of the Scout law states: “A Scout is thrifty” and is defined as “A Scout works to pay their way and to help others. They save for the future. They protect and conserve natural resources. A Scout is careful in their use of time and property.”

Timeline

Starts: The Camp Card will launch on February 1, 2024.

Cards will be available for pickup at the Council Service Center.

End: The Camp Card sale will end on July 1, 2024 at 5pm .

Getting Cards

Cards may be picked up at the Monmouth Council Service Center at any time during the sale.

How many cards should I get?  

Units will be limited to signing out the number of cards they sold in 2023* or if they did not sell in 2023* a limit of 200 cards on consignment. Units may take as many cards as they want if they pay for them upfront instead of signing them out on consignment. Cards that are paid for upfront instead of on consignment may not be returned. Units may sign out more cards at any time once they pay for the cards they already have.

It is found that the best results come from setting goals. To answer, we ask that your unit set a goal, for example, your goal may be for every Scout to sell 25 cards, which you should order accordingly. Please remember that you may pick up additional cards at any time, therefore do not worry about getting all of the cards you will need right away.

Costs, Profit, & Payments

Camp Cards are to be sold for $5 each.

This fundraiser provides a 50% profit margin! Therefore, the cost of each camp card is $2.50 each. All payments must be submitted in full, to the Monmouth Council, by 5:00pm on July 1, 2024. Any unpaid balance will incur a 50% service charge ($1.25 per card). Payments not made by July 31, 2024, will be charged to the Unit UDA account.

No one may sell Camp Cards at or in front of any Merchant (including Parking Lots) on the Camp Card, whether you have the Merchant’s permission or not.
