2019 Camp Card Sale

2019 Commitment Form:

Over 50 units sold Camp Cards last year and we are looking forward to growing that number even further in 2019! As we get ready to place our order for the cards to be produced, the commitment form above will have you answer a couple of important questions for us. We mainly want to know your unit’s:

• Camp Card Chair - Who is a good person to organize and “champion” your unit’s sale this year?

• Initial Card Allotment - How many cards would you like to start with for your unit (in increments of 50)? Remember, this is only an initial request – we can always get you more as the sale progresses.

Please answer those questions on the 2019 Camp Card commitment form by Friday January 25th: SIGN UP HERE

Timeline & Plan:

While the 2019 Camp Card won’t officially kick off until early March, the professional staff is currently working hard behind-the-scenes finalizing our vendors and promotions for the 2019 sale. Several of the vendors from last year will be returning, but we will have a few new options featured on the card. We are also planning to have two separate cards, split between the two distinct areas of our Council – the Pine Belt and Gulf Coast. This will allow us to concentrate on getting more local vendors and will hopefully allow for easier distribution at kickoffs and replenishing when units sell out of allotments.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Chris Pfalzgraf via email at or contact the Council Service Center.
