Why Sell Popcorn?

The popcorn sale is extremely important to funding your unit's Scouting program! The sale is equally important to our Council so that we can provide adequate funding and maintenance to Gorham Scout Ranch, get Campbell Scout Ranch up and running, provide service to units, develop new programs, and much more.


We want to help you make Popcorn the one fundraiser that supports your Scouting unit all year. If you have any questions, or you're not sure if popcorn is right for you, please reach out to us!
