2022 Popcorn Sales

The Popcorn program enables your unit to do the things you want without running many fund raisers.  By selling popcorn in the fall, you can support an entire year of Scouting for your unit. This is an officially approved council supported unit money-earning project that many packs, troops and crews participate in each year.

New This Year:



Tasty Trio Tin – chocolate covered pretzels, sweet and salty kettle corn and Smores popcorn.  Available for Take Order and Online sales only in the Fall.

Chocolate Pretzels Tin – melt in your mouth chocolate covered pretzels.  Available for Take Order and Online sales only in the Fall.

Different Ways To Sell Popcorn:

Show and Sell – a booth type sale

Scouts sell popcorn they have at various locations, asking people to “…support them in their Scouting program.”  See separate tab for details and suggestions.  Sale goes from August 6th through October 21st.

Take Order – a door-to-door type sale

Scouts sell door-to-door with their order form.  All products including those containing chocolate can be ordered.  Visit neighbors, ask relatives, have mom and dad take an order form to work.  Sale goes from September 12th through October 21st with product delivery on November 12th.

Show and Deliver – a door-to-door type sale

Selling door-to-door with product in-hand allows Scouts to make the sale, deliver the product, and collect the money all in one visit. Show and Deliver occurs at the same time as Take Order selling – September 12th through October 21st.

Show and Deliver Information

Online Sales

Online sales allow your Scouts to reach beyond their neighborhoods and sell across the country. Customers order online and CAMPMASTERS ships the popcorn directly to them. You do not have to handle any popcorn or money yourself. Online sales through October 25th count toward prizes and commissions.

Online accounts are created at the individual Scout level. The “Single Sign On Link” is sent to each Scout by their Popcorn Kernel. New selling Scouts are set up by their popcorn kernel or can self register.  Click on the link below to register or access your Scout account.  August 1st – December 31st.
