Congratulations on Flower Sales!

You sold over $6,700 of flowers in our spring flower sales event, and almost 50% of your sales comes back to the troop to assist with campout costs and for scouts to apply for camperships to help pay their way to various scout eventsl  And the troop was able to purchase additional flowers and made pots to deliver to our neighbors and members of Arapaho UMC who are high risk and cannot leave their homes due to coronavirus.  A Scout is Helpful, and a Scout is Thrifty. Well done!

  • Scouts going on a high adventure, mid-adventure or summer/spring break/winter camps, participating in fundraising can apply for camperships based on how much $$$ they raise in fundraising.  Some scouts already have summer camp paid for from popcorn sales. 
  • Profit from these sales pays for our campouts and troop gear – this is really important for everyone to participate.
  • Information on Camperships: ​Scouts apply for Camperships based on need.  The committee looks at the amount of fundraising the scout has done, rank advancement, attendance, etc. and determines the amount of the Campership. 
  • There will be two rounds of Camperships awarded in the next 12 months. 1) In May following in the Spring fundraisers  2) In December following the Fall fundraisers 

 If you have questions, please contact: Amy Oleson amyoleson@att.net 972-358-7618
