2016 Popcorn Program
Face it parents: we grew up in a different time. As kids, nothing was handed to us. We either worked or helped to earn our rewards: money, an activity with friends, or something we wanted. Scouting still believes in and stands for the core value of earning!

Benefits to Your Scout and Family:
  • Teaches Scouts the value & process of setting and working toward goals
  • Gives Scouts a strong sense of accomplishment through recognition
  • Enhances communication, leadership skills and confidence in your Scout
  • Scouts can earn valuable rewards including gift cards and prizes.

Sales Goals:

Below are the goals you and your Scout should strive for...
  • $250.00 per Scout - Tiger Cubs
  • $300.00 per Scout - Wolf Cubs
  • $350.00 per Scout - Bear Cubs
  • $450.00 per Scout - Webelos

Collect money with orders, make checks payable to Pack 3888
