Support Scouting While Sipping a Hot Delicious Beverage

There is nothing better than to sip a hot cup of coffee or tea. That is why we are excited about selling ground coffee and tea options for our 2024 Coffee & Tea Sale!  This fundraiser aids Scouting to raise funds to help with summer camp and activities for the coming year!

The 2024 Coffee & Tea Sale runs from March 1st to April 3rd to provide an opportunity for Scouts to earn money for their Scouting program. The sale features Erie Island Coffee Co. offering ground coffee and single-serve cups, and Harney & Sons Master Tea Co. with tea options.

Scout units will receive 30% commission on its total sale to help fund summer camp, high adventure treks, or even new equipment! All Scouts who participate are be eligible for prizes and rewards, with any Scout selling $1,800 or more receiving a free week of Summer Camp at a Black Swamp Area Council event this year!

Everyone loves a good drink, and this sale has the potential for great success. The commission returned to the unit will be 30% and a portion of the proceeds will support Black Swamp Area Council and camp operations.  Scouts who sell will be eligible for prizes and rewards.
