Trails-end Popcorn Sale is the key fundraising program offered through the Council that provides fun to Scouts who experience the satisfaction of making and achieving their sales goal. Top sellers earn great prizes and other recognition, including a Popcorn Party at the end of the season for top sellers. In addition, the campaign provides funds for Scouting operations through the year, with over 70% of sales going toward local programs.

If you’re unit is new to popcorn fundraising, the first step is to designate a unit “Popcorn Kernel” who should plan to attend the popcorn training held in August in each District. For more information, click the contact name for one of the Council’s districts to send an email.
