The Longhouse Council’s Camp Card program is designed to help a Scout Unit earn $5 for every $10 card sold. The program helps Units to purchase needed equipment and assist with financial assistance.
New this year, when you purchase a SaveAround Camp Card, the purchaser automatically receives a Savings Pass Number, giving them access to hundreds of nationally recognized vendors with even more savings!
The Longhouse Council’s SaveAround Camp Card and SaveAround Perks offer hundreds in savings at area and national dining, fast food, sports, and service merchants. Coupons are valid January 2017 through December 31, 2017 unless specifically noted.
- The top performing Unit that sells the most cards will be treated to a pizza party after the conclusion of the campaign.
- The top performing Scout that sells the most cards will be entitled to a complimentary campership for either Camp Woodland or Sabattis Scout Reservation.
- For Unit Leaders, during the first 5 weeks of the campaign, a drawing will be held each week for a $25 Save Around book to be given to a Unit Leader whose Unit is participating in the campaign.

After years of discussion, a Council Resource Fee was unanimously approved at our September Board Meeting. The program which will begin with our 2017 re-charters was rolled out at our Council Coordinated Forum on Monday October 24th. Ahead of that meeting we held a briefing with the District Key 3 Leadership on Thursday October 20th. Attached is the information that has been shared with our scouting family. Please review the information as it is very well presented and will answer a lot of questions you may have.
