A Scout is Thrifty...He helps pay his own way! The Three Fires Council is pleased to again offer the Council-wide fundraiser...the 2015 Camp Card! The 2015 camp cards should be available for pick-up at your selected location of Norris or Deicke or Roundtables on or after Tuesday, February 10th.
Camp Card Fundraiser – 2015! The goal of the Camp Card program is to ensure that every Scout has the opportunity to experience the outing in Scouting and unlock the door to adventure. This council-wide fundraiser provides units a simple and easy financial resource for Scouts to earn the money needed to attend camp, high adventure trips, or needed equipment. In 2015, we are offering a card based on coupon offers to local and area vendors. The cards are only $5.00 each, but have savings of over $75 with your unit/Scout earning 50% commission on every camp card sold! NOTE: Orders of the cards are on a first come, first serve basis so once the council runs out, we have to wait until any unused cards are returned. Reserve your camp cards (CLICK HERE to read more!)
Blue & Gold Placemats are HERE! No ordering necessary. First come, first served! Placemats can be picked up at both the Deicke and Norris Stores until they are gone. Have fun entertaining the Scouts while having a handy placemat with Camp Dates for the Parents. Pick up yours today! Questions? Call Laura at 630-797-4600.
