2020 Camp Card Store
Summer camp is traditionally one of the top highlights of a young person’s Scouting career. To provide Scouts with an opportunity to earn their way to summer camp, the Katahdin Area Council puts together a special discount card, frequently referred to as a “Camp Card,” featuring discounts and deals at area businesses. Participating Scouting Units earn at 50% commission on each $5 card they sell.
Purchasers can select from Five (5) localized Camp Card versions – Aroostook County, Hancock & Washington County, PV County, Penquis County and Waldo County. Each card offers five (5) one-time offers, and countless multiple-use offers good through December 31, 2020.

COVID-19 Virus Outbreak “Shuts Down” 2020 Camp Card Sale
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 virus outbreak arrived in Northern Maine right at the start of this year’s Camp Card sale, making it impossible for Scouts to sell cards door-to-door or at “Show and Sell” locations at local businesses. When you purchase a Camp Card online, purchasers can provide their Scout salesperson’s unit and name. This information will be used by the Council to distribute unit commissions.
When You Buy A Camp Card Online, We’ll Distribute A Card to Local First Responders and Medical Providers
For every Camp Card purchased online between now and July 10, the Council will distribute a matching number of Camp Cards to local first responders and medical providers. These individuals worked tirelessly and at significant personal risk to help keep all of us safe and healthy throughout the COVID-19 outbreak.
For customers that would like to support a Scout and/or support donating a card to local first responders and medical providers, you can select from two additional options.
“Donate My Card” – Instead of sending you a card, we will donate your card to a local first responder or medical provider. We will still match this card, so for the purchase of one card to send, we will send two cards. The Scout you are buying from will still get credit for the sale.
“Support a Scout” – Instead of sending you a card, you will be making a donation to support local Scouting. We will still match this card to send a card to a local first responder or medical provider. The Scout you are buying from will still get credit for the sale.
