There are many different activities in Scouting: summer camp, day camp, pinewood derby, jamborees, camping and other outdoor trips, and so much more!

To help pay for these activities, Scouts can raise money through a variety of different fundraisers.  Money earned from different fundraisers can also help pay for supplies they need, such as their Scout advancement badges.

Annual Popcorn Sale Fundraiser

Annual Pack 495 Popcorn FundraiserScouts BSA’s popcorn sale is made exclusively for sale by Trails End. It’s our largest annual fundraiser that runs mid-August through November.

Purchasing popcorn outside of a retail store (show-and-sell) or ordering popcorn (take-order), is the easiest way to help units raise money. Over 70% of all sales dollars remain here to support our Scouts at the council and the unit level.

The Scouts sell popcorn a variety of ways:

  • Online
  • Take home pre-order forms
  • At store site sales such as QFC or Safeway.
