Summer camp is approaching and it is continually important to allow a Scout the opportunity to pay their own way to camp, after all, "...A Scout is Thrifty...." 80% of youth that attend camp this summer will be in Scouting again next year. 60% of youth that do not attend summer camp will not be in Scouting in the fall. Camp Cards are an opportunity for a youth to pay their own way to summer camp with a $5 card.
Lots of new and exciting things are happening this year with camp cards. You can earn up to $2.50 per card to your unit as a fundraiser. Companies currently participating in the Camp Card are: Bass Pro Shop, Sport Clips, CiCi's Pizza, Brunswick Bowl, Coleman, Elitches, USA Airport Parking, and more to come.....
To learn more about Camp Cards and the new and exciting changes that are happening this year please check out the Denver Area Council's Camp Card page.
If you would haven't had a chance to sign up for summer camp, but would like your unit to attend, please check out the Denver Area Council Camping site.
Come participate in the 2014 Denver Area Council Scout Show. Scout Show is your chance to spend a day with 15,000 of your closest Scouting friends. The 2014 Scout Show will take place on Saturday, April 26th from 10am - 4pm at the National Western Stock Show Complex Hall of Education.
Scout Show is an expo-type experience where your Scouting unit is encouraged to host a booth, and come and check out what other Scouting packs, troops, teams, crews, and ships are doing in the Denver area. The theme for 2014 is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and should be an exciting one. We are kicking off our 2nd century of Scouting and we hope all participate.
