    Want To Attend Camp Free?

    Each spring Twin Valley Council offers our Scouts the opportunity to earn money towards camp by selling Trash Bags.  This year the sale runs from March 31 - April 22, 2018.

    We offer 4 sizes of trash bags for sale; selling between $10-$20 per roll.  Each roll of trash bags you sell, earns you 35% commission.

    On time cost of Northwood Camp for an adult and Webelos is $175.  Assuming your average trash bag sale is $15, you would earn $5.25 per roll of bags sold.  Sell 34 rolls of trash bags and Webelos/Adult attend Northwoods Camp for free.

    Ask your Cubmaster for details.
