Adventure Card Online Sales

Posted on May 28 2020 - 1:44pm

If Scouts still have Adventure Cards, you can still sell them a few different ways and earn $5 per card towards your Scouting adventures. Friends, family, and customers can now go online and purchase an Adventure Card for themselves or donate one to a Hometown Hero. Customers can select to have the card delivered now through the mail, delivered later when it is safe for Scouts to do so, or donate a card. All donated cards will be given to grocery workers, hospital staff, and first responders. Scouts will receive the $5 commission for every sale. We hope to resume our traditional Adventure Card sale at some point when it is safe to do. In the meantime Scouts can use this website to sell the cards. Here is the link to the online sale website: http://www.ocbsa.org/adventurecard/ . You can send the link out via email, social media post to friends and family. Please make sure that the person purchasing the card puts "TROOP 1613" and the "full name of your Scout" in the available boxes when they purchase the card online to make sure your Scout receives credit for the sale. If you still have physical cards in your possession, you can still sell them by making a phone call or emailing friends and family and mailing the card to them or dropping them off when it is safe to do so. If need any assistance, please contact Mr. Mouleart.

Summer Camp Campership Opportunity

Posted on May 21 2020 - 4:14pm

If Scouts attending Summer Camp are in need of assistance to help cover some of the costs, the San Diego Imperial Council has a Campership form your parent can fill out and send directly to their Council to request a $100 Campership towards the fees of Summer Camp at Fiesta Island. The $100 amount is available to out-of-council Troops if they meet the family income requirement. Please see attached for the details on what they require. Susan from the Camping Department at SDIC (sdiccamp@scouting.org) said the due date has been extended past May 5th so it is recommended that you turn it in soon if interested. If you do submit a form to them, please let Mr. Mouleart know so he can follow up with their council to see if the request was approved and make sure the $100 is credited towards your Scout's summer camp fee.
