Scout benefits include:

  • Easy to sell product
  • A turn-key program; no upfront cost
  • No leftover product; order what your Scouts sold
  • Sales support local Scouting
  • Supports membership dues, camping programs, equipment
  • A built-in prize program
  • Great bonus prizes – free camp and more
  • Helps teach Scouts the responsibility and value of earning own way, goal, setting, budgeting, handling rejection, perseverance, skills, gaining confidence, and salesmanship
  • Customizable online profile for online sales
  • Earning a merit badge – Personal Management, Communications, Public Speaking, American Business
