How does a Scout receive free admission to the camporee from their $850+ in popcorn sales?
Dylan Melling emailed each unit’s popcorn kernel in January.  Scouts receiving free admission to the camporee need to be pre-registered by February 15th; Dylan will add the credit before the Feb. 28th deadline for payment (just make a payment for the amount for the other Scouts and Dylan will make sure the credit is added).  If payment has already been made in full, your unit will receive a refund. If your unit didn’t receive the email, contact Dylan at 937-278-4285 or Also contact Dylan if you had a Scout transfer to another unit, i.e., Webelos to Scout BSA.
