  • Blue Ribbon Award

    Units participating in Popcorn sales, Camp Card sales, and hosting a Family Friends of Scouting presentation will receive…
    · free rank advancement in the Scout Shop
  • · waiver of the $1 per person unit insurance fee at recharter
    · a Family Friends of Scouting streamer for their unit flags
