Participating in the Popcorn Fundraiser is fun, important, and it helps in so many ways! 

It allows the scout to pay their own way to camp; it helps the scout learn salesmanship and earn rewards for their effort.   It also helps the council !!

Popcorn for Gamehaven Council's Popcorn Fundraiser is supplied by Trail's End.  For 2010, all features of the popcorn are better. 

There have been BIG changes with the popcorn this year - the flavor, the nutritional value, the packaging, it is BETTER all the way around!  Trail's End has put together short informative video's regarding the IMPROVED product.  Learn more about the popcorn by clicking on the links below.
