About Scout Accounts

Please keep in mind that these outings and camp experieces are all optional and supplemental to Pack 151's den and pack programs.  

Paying for camp: Scouts can pay for their camp experiences with their popcorn & wreath fundraising "Scout Accounts".  The Pack Committee has determined that these fundraising dollars should be reserved to send kids to camp, not other outings. Camperships may also be available to scouts, depending on the activity. 

Paying for outings: These are optional and generally require out-of-pocket advance payments.
