2018 Nuts for Scouting

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
  • The 25 Top Sellers Council wide will receive a Limited Edition Winners Circle Hat.

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

Dates Available for Nuts for Scouting Show n' Sell 

This year, at least initially, there are 2 sets of product in the Adirondack District available, 2 sets of product in the Turning Point District available, and 4 sets of product available for the Greater Capital Region. As product is sold, we will reduce the number of available dates and use the leftover as restock.

Product is signed out for 12 day periods allowing units to have back to back weekend Show n' Sells. Once a unit makes a reservation for product, they will pick up their product on the Thursday before their first weekend, hold their Show n' Sells, then return the unsold product by the Tuesday following their second weekend. Payment is preferred at the time of return.

To reserve product in the Adirondack District, contact Chris Harloff.

To reserve product in the Turning Point District, contact Beth Bush.
