Camp Cards are discount cards sold during late February thru April. The unit’s commission is 50% of the face value.
Camp Cards are an excellent way for the youth to earn their own way and pay for summer programs locally, out of state, and for high adventure.
In addition, operating this sales campaign is an excellent way for the youth to learn skills in goal setting, project management, sales communications, and self confidence.
3 different Camp Cards for 2019:
- for Tarrant and Denton Counties,
- for Waco , Temple, and Killeen communities,
- for Weatherford area communities.
No Risk – return what is not sold on the specific Turn IN and Settlement Date. Cards not turned in by the deadline will be billed to the unit.
