Popcorn Program
Scouting still believes in and stands for the core value of earning!  Popcorn sales raise funds to support pack activities.

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 take orders individually during August.  Show and sells (storefront sales) start in August and go through October.

Ways to Sell:                                                                                                                              
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 a few weeks.
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 the product in a few weeks.
  • (It is best to collect the money upfront when possible)
Selling Online
  • The Customer can go online and purchase popcorn with a Credit Card  at http://www.trails-end.com/, they use your zipcode, your scout's name, and unit number.  Also, an email can be sent to the customer from the Trails End account with a direct link.
  • The Product is shipped directly from Trail’s End to the customer and the Scout and Unit receive credit for the Sale.
Show and Sells
  • Show and 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.  
  • Check the calendar for show and sell times and other important details.
Scouts can also create their own Show and 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!
