Popcorn Program

The Popcorn Program is an important part of Scouting.  If managed well the program can generate enough income to financially support your Scouting program for the entire year! Some of the great benefits of selling popcorn include:

  • There are NO up-front costs to your unit
  • A built-in prize program to support the Unit and individual Scout goals
  • Participating in the Popcorn Program can complete requirements for rank advancement and multiple merit badges
  • Popcorn is supported by the local community
  • Scouts can earn a free week at a National Capital Area Council camp of their choice!

More importantly participating in the Popcorn Program teaches Scouts the value of earning their own way, setting goals, and supporting their unit program budget. This is an essential part of the character development learned through Scouting.
