“Prize Mania” Prize Program

“Camp Bucks” Prize Program
• The “Prize Mania” Prize Program is a great program, but there are some Scouts who would rather use the Popcorn and Nuts sale to help earn their way to Summer Camp. We are offering a “Camp Bucks” program at selected levels for use at Pennsylvania Dutch Council Camps or Programs. These bucks can be used for Summer Resident Camp, Summer Day Camps, Fall District Events, National Youth Leadership Training, Spring District Events, or towards Council High Adventure Programs. For 2020, the bucks ARE ONLY available for use within the Pennsylvania Dutch Council.

How do I submit prize orders?
Prize Mania Prize Orders and Mega-corn the Destroyer Collection Patch
These prizes are the prizes that every Scout regardless of how much he sells is eligible for. Once you know which prizes and how many of each prize you need you can log into the Popcorn system at https://www.campmasters.org/. Here you will find a link to order prizes. Enter the quantity of each prize you need and submit. Prize Orders placed by the end of October will be delivered in November.

Club Prizes, Military Sales, and Top Salesman
Those Scouts that qualified for the $3,500, $2,750, $2,000, $1,500, or $1000 Clubs, qualified for the military patches or were your unit’s top salesman, need to be submitted to the Pennsylvania Dutch Council using the 2019 Council Prizes Form. A copy of this form is included in the packet. This form should be submitted electronically to Scott Arnold at scott.arnold@scouting.org.

Camp Bucks
Camp Bucks can be a great way to engage your older Scouts in the sale. Camp Bucks replace a prize from the Prize Mania Prize program, but do not replace the club levels, military sales, or top salesman. Camp Bucks can be earned starting at prize level 5. Scouts wishing to earn Camp Bucks instead of prizes need to submit the Camp Bucks form included with the Unit Guidebook or found on our website www.padutchbsa.org.
