Plan your 2018 Scout Popcorn Adventure

Looking to fuel even more great Scouting adventures? If so, be sure to start planning for the 2018 Scout Popcorn campaign which officially kicks-off on September 24th. Every year we strive to make sure that Groups and Scouting youth have the tools and information they need to reach their Scout Popcorn fundraising goals. Which is why for 2018, we’ve develop a toolkit for a successful campaign through PLAN, DO and REVIEW.

Start planning now with new resources that will help you set goals and prepare youth for the campaign like:

You will also find tools — from ‘thank you postcards’ to ‘sorry I missed you door hangers’ — to help you during the DO and REVIEW phase.


2018 Scout Popcorn Packaging

2018 Scout Popcorn Packaging

Like last year, our delicious product lineup will offer a minimum of 45% return to Groups and will have 5 products at or under $20 — like Trail Mix and White Cheddar popcorn.

We hope that you will like the new packaging design with the mission of developing well-rounded youth better prepared for success at the forefront. Each bag of Scout Popcorn showcases the incredible adventures Scouting youth experience every year and the skills they develop along the way.

2018 Scout Popcorn Incentive Program

2018 Scout Popcorn Incentive Program

Returning this year is the Scout Popcorn Adventure Club where all youth who raise $2,500 and over receive a ScoutShop gear box seasonally. 2017 saw 176 youth join the club and we look forward to enrolling even more Scouting youth in 2018.

NEW! The 2018 campaign will provide Groups with the ability to create their own, customizable incentive program. As Scouters, you know how to reward your Group best. So we will be supporting Groups to create their personalize incentive programs by offering a 20% discount to the Scout Shop in-store and online. Build your own Youth Recognition Program in three easy steps.

Ultimately it was feedback from Scouters, Parents and Youth that led to this new program. Thank you to everyone for your input. Creating an incentive program curated to your Group will allow you the flexibility to select prizes based on your Section/Groups upcoming adventures while also enabling you to reward youth best.

Here is 10th Barrie’s Group Commissioner, Greg Peach’s experience with his Groups prize program:

“Our Groups Scout Popcorn experience in 2017 was a complete 180 degree change from the previous year. We set aside 5% of our budget (based on projected sales of $6,000) to fund the Groups incentive program. We had a sampling of prizes at the Groups popcorn kick-off party so they could see some of the things they could earn. We also made sure there were lots of games and popcorn treats to get the youth and parents excited about the whole thing. We exceeded our goal of $6,000 and we raised over $8,500.”

Why Scout Popcorn?

Why Scout Popcorn?

Together with 1,031 Groups, over $6.5 million dollars was raised during the 2017 Scout Popcorn campaign. That amounts to nearly $4 million worth of great Scouting adventures for youth across the country. Scout Popcorn also helped support the No One Left Behind program allowing over 3,000 Canadian youth from low-income families to benefit from Scouting.

But Scout Popcorn is not only about funding great adventures, it helps us achieve our mission of developing well-rounded youth better prepared for success in the world. Through selling Scout Popcorn, Scouts learn many valuable life and business skills such as marketing, strategy development, financial responsibility, and develop positive self-esteem.

We hope that Scout Popcorn will help your Group experience all the incredible adventures you have planned for the 2018–2019 Scouting year!
