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 

Ways to Sell:                                                                       
Show and Sells
  • 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.  
  • Check the calendar for show and sell times and other important details and contact Stephanie Peters (pack433.popcorn@gmail.com) to sign up.
Take Orders
  • The Scout with his Akela goes door to door with a Take Order Form.  Take Order Forms will be provided during the Popcorn Kickoff 
  • The customer writes his/her order on the Take Order Form and the Scout collects the money.
  • The Scout processes the order and delivers the Popcorn to the Customer in December.
Selling at Work
  • Mom and/or Dad take an order form to their work.
  • Fellow co-workers write their order on the order form.
  • Mom and/or Dad deliver product and collect the money in a few weeks.
  • (It is best to collect the money upfront when possible)
Selling Online
  • The Scout communicates his Order Key via email, phone, and so on, to potential or existing customers. The Customer can go online and purchase popcorn with a Credit Card  at http://www.trails-end.com/trailsend/scouts/
  • The Product is shipped directly from Trail’s End to the customer and the Scout and Unit receive credit for the Sale.
Prizes and Rewards:
  • Receive prizes from Trail-End (see order forms)
  • District and Council Top Individual Sellers Reward 
  • Splatfest pies for Den Leader and Cubmaster
  • Boy's Life, Dues, Day Camp or Bovay Trip paid
