THIS PAGE IS BEING REVISED FOR THE 2018 POPCORN SEASON

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-unit money-earning project that many packs, troops and crews participate in each year.

New This Year:

CAMP MASTERS 5 oz. White Cheddar Cheese Tin

  • Available for Show & Sell sales
  • Selling for $15 per tin

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 11th through October 24th.

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 8th through October 24th with product delivery starting on November 17th.

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 8th through October 24th.

Show and Deliver Information

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 count toward prizes and commissions.

Online accounts are created at the Pack/Troop/Crew level. The username and password is given to each Scout by their Popcorn Kernel. Click on the link below to access. Select “Patriots’ Path Council” and enter your user name and password.  August 1st – December 22nd.
