Fall Products Sale

Support a Scout you know. Order popcorn online here anytime of the year!

Why Do Scout units sell?

  • Scouts learn life lessons by “earning their own way.”
  • Product sales revenue supports the unit program.
  • Provides funds for activities and advancement, lowers the cost of camps, district activities, and prices at the Scout shop. 
  • Increase your unit and council income – 50% stays with the local unit.
  • Scouts use the funds for various Scouting programs, fees and activities.
  • There are loads of incentives to motivate Scouts: cool prizes, Top 100 Club, free summer camp and more.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars go back to the Scouting program in the Great Rivers Council as a result of the annual Trail's End and Burger's Smokehouse sale. Nearly 73% of all dollars collected during the sale support local Scouting. Units earn a 50% commission on Trails End and Burger's Smokehouse products they sell. The product sale is a way for a Scout to support his or her way through the various activities during the year. There are four options to sell: traditional take order sales, show-and-deliver, sell online to friends and family out of town and show-and-sell. For more information, contact your district kernel or district executive.

Leaders, Sign up your unit for both products to sell Burgers' Smokehouse and Trail's End products.
