2019 Popcorn Program
Face it parents: we grew up in a different time. As kids, nothing was handed to us. We either worked or helped to earn our rewards: money, an activity with friends, or something we wanted. Scouting still believes in and stands for the core value of earning!

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 can earn their way to Summer Camping


Sales Goals:
Minimum sales requirement is $400 for the $60 fundraising check to be returned. Scout credit is earned on all popcorn sales regardless of amount sold.

Below is the goal you and your Scout should strive for...
  • $600.00
Ways to Sell:                                                                                               
IMPORTANT:
All parents MUST register their Scout to receive credit for sales and prizes. The instructions are in the information packet you were given..                                                                                                             
Wagon Sales( take orders)
  • The Scout with his Akela goes door to door with a Take Order Form.  Take Order Forms will provided during the Popcorn Kickoff  (extra forms available throughout the campaign..see Cubmaster for details)
  • The customer writes his/her order on the Take Order Form and the Scout collects the money at time of sale. 
  • The Scout turns their take order form into the Pack. ( take orders and money are due October 24th this year)
  • The Scout picks up all of his popcorn orders, and delivers the Popcorn to the Customer in mid to late November. There is also an app this year!!! Parents can take orders via wagon Sales and accept credit cards through the app to pay for the take order. ( More details to come)
Selling at Work
  • Mom and/or Dad take an order form to their work and collect money at time of sale.
  • Fellow co-workers write their order on the order form.
  • Mom and/or Dad deliver product on or after 11-16-19.
  • (It is best to collect the money upfront when possible)
Selling Online
  • The Scout and parent set up the Scout's account online
  • The Scout communicates his Order Key via email, phone, and so on, to potential or existing customers. The Customer can go online and purchase popcorn with a Credit Card  at http://www.trails-end.com/trailsend/scouts/
  • The Product is shipped directly from Trail’s End to the customer and the Scout and Unit receive credit for the Sale.FREE SHIPPING.
  • Store Front,( Formerly Show and Sell)
  • 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 insert you received, this website, and emails for show and sell times and other important details.
