2014 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
  • Scouts can earn their way to an adventure at a Pack Sleepover   

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

  • The Scout, with his Akela, goes door to door with a Take Order Form.

Selling at Work

Selling Online

Show & Sells
  • Show & Sells make up a big part of our popcorn program. We've obtained permission from local businesses to set up a sales table. Show and Sells have plenty of products on-hand for people to buy. Different Scouts work at the table in shifts. Always have adult supervision.  
  • See sidebar for Show & Sell dates.
  • Scouts should participate in as many Show & Sells as possible.
  • All sales count toward Scout's sales goals and individual prizes.
  • Scout can sign up for available time slots through their Den leaders.


Scouts can also create their own Show & Sell...
  • ...by reaching out to local businesses and getting permission to set up a table for sales.  If you do, be sure to let us know.  We're happy to help you help us by coordinating other Scout's participation and providing the popcorn!
