The Council-wide Popcorn Sale represents a money-earning opportunity that benefits the Scout, the unit, and the Baltimore Area Council alike.  While units can fund all or part of their yearly programs with a single popcorn sale, some units empower Scouts with the ability to earn their way to outdoor adventures.  These Scouts accomplish personal goals to fully fund their summer camping experience.  To officially sign up for the 2016 sale, please complete the form below!  Join us in making 2016 a great Popcorn Sale!

Our two 2016 BAC Popcorn Tradeshows will be a fun and informative program designed to give your unit the necessities to have an outstanding Popcorn Sale.  We will be combining our traditional Popcorn Training with a convention style tradeshow to allow units to focus on the aspects of the sale most important to them.  During these programs units will be able to visit with representatives from the District Popcorn Teams, Camp Masters' (Product Vendor), National Supply (Prize Vendor),  as well as several tables designed to show “Best Methods” from Show and Sells to Take Orders.  We are also happy to announce that Michael Beck will be on hand at both of our Tradeshows prepared to present his method on increase unit sales by an average of 14%.    

Units can earn up to 39% of their total sales

Base Commission = 25%

+3% BONUS Commission for Attending a Popcorn Tradeshow/Training

  • Set a sales goal for your unit and for each den or patrol. Most important step a unit can do. Base the goal on your actual budget needs.
  • Communicate the units plan to assist leaders and committee members and together, determine a sales goal or each Scout, based on the unit’s goal.
  • Conduct a “fun-filled’ kick-off event for Scouts and their parents.
  • Emphasize what the Scouts will receive for hitting their goal.
  • Provide a letter to the parents that clearly spells out:
    • the purpose of the sale.
    • How the money raised will be used.
    • And what the “per-Scout goal” is
  • Consider using some of the unit’s commission to offer additional incentives that your Scouts really want.
  • Encourage ALL your Scouts to go out and sell! 67% of people will buy when asked and less than 30% of the public is asked.
  • Sell to friends, family members, neighbors, etc.
  • Take the “Take order form” to work.
  • Have a victory celebration!
