Help Your Scout Earn Money For Camp – Sell Summer Flowering Bulb Kits!
The Spring Product Sale is designed to help Scouts earn their way to summer camp, day camp, a BSA high adventure base, or raise money for the unit’s outdoor program. This year, we have decided to sell summer flowering bulbs from Dutch Mill Bulbs as a “take order” only sale. Units participating in this program earn 25% commission from each product sold. The remainder of the funds will benefit the programs of the Pennsylvania Dutch Council, BSA.
Each bulb set is priced at $13 and there will be at least 18 types of bulb packages to choose from! These make great gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, housewarming, Easter, as well as gifts for clients.
The Spring Product sale will take place from January 23rd to February 24th, 2023, allowing units about a month to earn money for their Scouting programs.
Unit Registration for the Spring Sale Is Open!
Register your unit HERE for the 2023 Spring Product Sale by midnight on January 13th. This will help us determine the amount of materials to prepare for each unit.

Sell Scouting, Not Just Flower Bulbs!
Families should understand that they are not just selling bulbs to beautify the outdoors, but selling Scouting – a summer camp or Scouting experience that will reinforce Scouting’s aims of character development, citizenship training and personal fitness in youth. Be sure to emphasize that each bulb package sold helps a Scout go to camp. The greatest likelihood for a successful fundraiser is having everyone know they are supporting Scouting. Scouts can sell bulbs to friends, family members, and businesses in their communities who may want to take improve their outdoor space and help Scouts earn their way to camp!
