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. 

To sign up your Scout Unit to sell Trails End Popcorn and Burgers' products, click both links above and fill out both registration forms.
