Black Swamp Area Council Popcorn Sale 2022

As the Fall Sale kicks off mark your calendar and prepare your Scout group's calendar with the following dates. The Fall Popcorn Sale is a great opportunity to get out and ask family members, friends and your community to support your Scouting Adventures and/or help your Scout go to camp, while in exchange the customer can receive a gourmet tasty product as a "thank you" gift for supporting your unit. 

Please note the first of two Show & Sell order dates is Aug. 15. Have your unit's Show & Sell ordered on your unit page in the Trail's End system. Product will then be distributed Aug. 26-27, depending on your district.

This year's sale takes place from August to October. Even with a 3-month sale, units can be highly productive with just a 4-6 week effort in selling. Using the Trail's End tips, Scouts can sell a minimum of $1,000 in just a couple of days. We have an extended window for the popcorn sale so that units can work at their pace. Some units may begin in August, while others are likely to start in late September. Which ever works best for your Scouting families, is the right choice to help you fund your unit's treasury and ensure your Scouts have the best possible experiences with activities, summer camp and more!

The Unit Kernel Guidebook, order forms and new trailing videos from Trail's End are posted and linked to the right on this page in the index.

You can begin today, by registering your unit on the Trail's End website at https://www.trails-end.com/unit-registration. This is important so your unit is receiving updated information on the sale. Please register today even if you have registered in the past, a re-registration is necessary.
