Why Do Scout units sell?
- Scouts learn life lessons by “earning their own way.”
- Product sales revenue supports the unit program.
- Provides funds for activities and advancement, lowers the cost of camps, district activities, and prices at the Scout shop.
- Increase your unit and council income – 50% stays with the local unit.
- Scouts use the funds for various Scouting programs, fees and activities.
- There are loads of incentives to motivate Scouts: cool prizes, Top 100 Club, free summer camp and more.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars go back to the Scouting program in the Great Rivers Council as a result of the annual Trail’s End and Burger’s Smokehouse sale. Nearly 73% of all dollars collected during the sale support local Scouting. Units earn a 50% commission on Trail’s End and Burger’s Smokehouse products they sell directly. Online Trail’s End sales may vary. The product sale is a way for a Scout to support his or her way through the various activities during the year. There are four options to sell: traditional take order sales, show-and-deliver, sell online to friends and family out of town and show-and-sell. For more information, contact your district kernel or district executive.
