Nuts for Scouting 2019

Fundraiser to Raise Money For Summer Camp

In cooperation with Virginia Diner Peanut Company, registered Twin Rivers Council Scouting members and families are invited to sell nuts to help provide funds for individual or unit needs.  The Nut Sale is an opportunity for Units or members to help Scouts attend one of our great Scout Camps (Rotary, Wakpominee or one of the many Day Camp opportunities).

  • All Products are between $10.00 and $20.00
  • Scouts earn a patch for filling a order sheet
  • Earn a 35% Commission
  • Each Scout who sells 5 or more containers will earn an entry into a drawing for a free week at Camp

This fundraiser does not replace the fall popcorn sale.  It is an additional opportunity to raise funds and help our Scouting families out with everyday scouting expenses.

Benefits

There are many benefits for not only the unit, but the Scout!

  • Help pay your OWN way to Summer Resident Camp, Day Camp, or Family Camp!
  • Get a new uniform or other equipment for camp
  • Provide funding for special unit summer event
  • Work on Salesmanship Merit Badge
  • Save for a High Adventure Trip
