COVID-19 Updates

SCOUTSBSA SUMMER CAMP, CUB SCOUT RESIDENT CAMP, CUB SCOUT DAY CAMP IS HAPPENING AS SCHEDULED. PLEASE SEE OUR SUMMER CAMP COVID-19 MITIGATION PROCEDURES HERE

Social Distancing has now become a way of life for us all.  We are experiencing Scouting from the confinements of our homes, digital screens, and backyards through virtual meetings and campouts.  This is our new temporary normal for us to ensure that we are all safe.

Scouting from Home: The Gulf Stream Council will be offering several online program opportunities for scouts to work on advancement as we practice Social Distancing. For information on our Remote Activity workshop, please click here.


CAMP CARDS: In order to best support our Scouts and Scouters, we have made the decision to extend the Camp Card sale to June 15th. We want to ensure that we are making every effort to support your fundraising efforts so scouting stays strong in our communities. 

We recognize that because of recent events, our Scouting families may face unexpected financial hardship, and this campaign provides a way to earn funds for upcoming Scouting adventures at a time when it may not be possible to pay for them out-of-pocket.

For this fundraiser, we are offering our supporters with a year-long savings membership for the “Entertainment Coupon App”, which offers coupons nationwide based on where you are, at the low price of $20.  So when you are in West Palm Beach, your coupons will apply to what is nearby.  When you travel to Orlando or Miami, the coupons will reflect what’s in the area.  Savings wherever you are!  Click here to watch the Raisy overview video

For every $20 savings membership sold, the commission breakdown is:

Entertainment Fundraising

$7

Unit Commission

$6.50

Gulf Stream Council

$6.50

Keep this in mind: the commission on 1 savings membership is higher than it would be for 2 physical camp cards!

To get started, please go to fundraising.entertainment.com and select “Join your Fundraiser.” Search for “Gulf Stream Council” and sign up!  This will allow you to quickly set up your Scout’s fundraising page just like the Trails End personalized pages.  With quick action and providing Scouts with access, you can raise significant funds for your Unit and provide your Scouts a way to connect with family and friends safely while bringing the benefit to everyone.  Attached are instructions to help you get started!
