Camp Cards Support Our Heroes

Recognize those heroes that sacrifice their health  and safety to serve you!

Dear Unit Leader:

We hope this message finds you and your Scouts well. As you are aware, the Camp Card Sale was put on hold due to the COVID-19 Virus. As our Scouts and Units count on the Camp Card Sale to earn money for their many great Scouting adventures, we have added an online “Front Line Hero Camp Card” feature to the sale. Scout and Unit Leaders will be able to invite friends and family to purchase camp cards via email or social media. They will provide the customer with a link, along with their name and unit # to make the purchase. The cards purchased will be given out as a “Thank You” to our local Front Line Heroes, the essential workers in our community.  At the end of the Camp Card Sale. $2.50 of every $5.00 donated will also go towards your Scout Unit. Below you will find a sample email that your Scouts and Leaders can send to their family and friends.

For questions about this program contact:

Link to purchase the cards: Purchase

My name is (name) and I am a Scout in (Unit & Number). Due to the COVID-19 Virus, I am unable to earn my way to camp and other great Scouting adventures by selling a camp card. What I can do is invite you to purchase camp cards that will be given as a “Thank You” to our local ”

Front Line Heroes”, the essential workers in our community. For every $5 donated to “Front Line Heroes”, a discount card or “camp card,” will be given to an essential worker in the county my unit resides in. $2.50 of every $5 donated will also go to my local Scout unit to help me attend camp and go on other Scouting adventures!

 

The card pays for itself and is a great way to help essential workers save money and show them we care! Featured discounts on the card include:

  • $5 off a purchase of $75 or more at Harris Teeter
  • $10 off a purchase of $50 or more at Dicks Sporting Goods
  • $2 off a haircut at Supercuts
  • $5 off a purchase of $50 or more at Apex Outfitters (Wake and Durham Cards)

You can order online at

Make sure to enter (Unit & Number) and my (name) in the comments section to help support my local Scout unit too!

Together, we can give back to those who give to us selflessly every day. I hope I can count on your support.

Sincerely,
