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!

The Baltimore Area Council is currently taking requests for additional product from units who need to add to their orders.  We are working with Camp Master to provide the best product in the quickest amount of time.

To place an order, please email your request of product (by container) to popcorn@baltimorebsa.org by MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28th.  We will place the order with a projected delivery of December 15th and immediate distribution.  Any additional product will be subject to your current full commission and cannot affect your prize order status.  In the case of units who received a smaller commission to participate in the prize program, the BAC will be adding the “No Prizes 4%” to your commission.  Subsequent invoices will be sent to units and payment is due at receipt of product.

All product will be delivered to and can be picked up from the BAC North Warehouse at

8803 Kelso Drive, Essex, MD 21221.  Warehouse times TBA.

Due to manufacturer shortages, we are unable to provide the following products in this 3rd order:

Units can earn up to 39% of their total sales

Base Commission = 25%

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

+2% BONUS Commission for Attending a Michael Beck Seminar ***

+5% BONUS Commission for submitting your final payment on time

+4% BONUS Commission for declining use of Prize Incentive Program

***Units that sold in 2015 and had an increase in total unit sales from 2014 to 2015 will automatically earn the 2% bonus commission. However all units are still encouraged to attend.  

  • 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!
