Scouts Funding Their Adventure!

Michigan Crossroads Council, 2016 Spring Sale

Hello Scouts and Scouters,

As we announced last week, due to reasons completely out of our control, the Spring Product Sale that has been promoted as a way for Scouts to earn their own way to camp, has been cancelled. The technology that was being prepared to host this fundraiser was simply not ready and we felt it it would not be in the best interest of our Scouts and Scouters to try to host this sale without the correct technology.

Because we will not be hosting this sale, Weaver Popcorn who was working with us to facilitate this sale, has gifted the Scouts of Michigan $25,000 in scholarships for 2016 summer camp. Application for the Weaver Popcorn scholarship is now open and available online. This scholarship is open to any Michigan Crossroads Council, registered Scout who is attending a Michigan Crossroads Council camp, regardless of age or financial need. However, highest consideration will be given to the Scout who had already committed to be part of the Spring Product Sale as a fundraiser to help go to camp.

The application is now open online and will remain open through May 1 when all applications are due. Applications will then be reviewed by the Field Service Councils. All applicants will receive an email on May 10th with the results of their application.

If you have any questions regarding the online application process, please contact us at camp.michigan@scouting.org or 517-816-7755
