Camp Cards 2017

The Mason-Dixon Council, BSA welcomes you on board for the 2017 Camp Card Fundraiser. The Camp Card is a fundraiser specifically geared to help scouts pay their way to camping opportunities in the Mason-Dixon Council as well as any of the BSA’s High Adventure Bases.

If you are participating in the Camp Card Fundraiser, the following breakdown is what you need to know.
o Camp Cards will be distributed to units in packs of 10 cards.
o You are STRONGLY encouraged to have a budgeted goal and sell the cards to meet that goal. Returning cards do not help Scouting.
o Camp Cards are released to units on a consignment basis for the duration of the fundraiser from March 15, 2017 - May 5 2017.
o At the conclusion of the fundraiser on May 5, 2017 units will be responsible for returning all unsold cards (it is expected that you sell all you request) to the

Mason-Dixon Council or payment of $2.50 (50% Commission) per card sold by the unit. If a unit returns unsold Camp Cards to the Mason-Dixon Council after May 5, 2017 the unit will only keep a 40% Commission or $2.00 per card sold.
