2017 Camp Cards

2017 Camp Card Program
Commitment Form due by December 31

Dear Scouters,

Camp Cards
The Blue Ridge Council is accepting commitment forms for the 2017 Camp Card program.  Each Camp Card will sell for only $5.00 to the general public and will have multiple discounts.  Units participating in this program will earn 50% commission ($2.50) on each Camp Card they sell.    There is no risk to your Unit as long as all unsold cards are returned to the Council by May 12.  

A new option for 2017 is to sign out a minimum of 1000 cards and return zero cards and earn 60%.  The unit must elect this option and commit to not returning any cards on their commitment form to earn the 60% commission.  

To receive the full 50% commission, units are required to return the 2017 Blue Ridge Council Camp Card Unit Commitment Form by December 31.   (This is two months earlier than last  year!)  You can drop off the form at the Council office or scan and email the form to Lori.maguire@scouting.org

The 2017 Camp Card Leader guide contains the Unit Commitment Form on page 4 and all of the information and key dates for this years program.  The  Camp Card Leader guide is attached to this email and is available from the Blue Ridge Council website home page.     Page 2 of the Camp Card Leader Guide lists the discounts that will be available on the Camp Card.

New Version and Health Forms Requirments

The new health forms are available from the BSA Website at -> Medical Forms.  

For those of you who have been around a while, please review the new requirements.  They are different than in the past. 

This might be the time to rethink your Pack/Troop/Crew/Post policies and have everyone complete a Part A & B at the beginning of EACH scout year.
