Cub Scout Pack 499 provides multiple ways for scouts to participate in fundraising events to help pay their own way.
A Scout is THRIFTY
A scout saves for the future, protects/conserves natural resources, and carefully uses time/property.
Every fall, September -October, Cub Scout Pack 499 participates in popcorn show and sell. All scouts have the opportunity to sell Trails End fundraiser popcorn. This is done in front of a store as a group, or as an individual with parent supervision. 30% of all sales go directly to Cub Scout Pack 499 to cover registration fees, dues, and the cost of awards and activities. 40% of the sales goes to the area council to finance the upkeep of our scouting campsites.
Pack 499 host the Great Scouting Cake Auction. Cub Scouts and parents have a chance to show off their culinary skills and creativity through cake design. Family and friends are invited to bid on the creations in a lively auction. Things get pretty wild! All proceeds go directly to the unit to cover volunteer expenses and to fund Cub Scout Pack 499’s scholarship program.
Camp Card Sales
Each spring our pack participates in camp card sales. Camp cards are discount cards that provide savings to over 10 retailers in the area. 50% of the sales go directly to each scout. The funds are used to pay for the day and resident camps, uniforms, camping supplies and any scout related expense.
