Annual passes have arrived at the Black Hills Area Council! These passes cover council events (see list below) throughout 2017 and make the perfect popcorn prize or present this holiday season. Purchase your Annual Passes at the Scout Service Center now through December 31, 2016.

What are Annual Passes?

Brand new this year, Annual Passes are a way for both youth and adults to pre-purchase council events. By purchasing an Annual Pass, the pass holder will save money in the long run over paying for event fees as council events happen. Approximate savings are listed below for each type of annual pass.

How Does it Work?

Upon purchase at the Scout Service Center, you will receive a business card size pass with your name on the back. In addition to the pass, you will receive a paper with various voucher codes on them. This is the important part of your pass. On this paper will be all the events included on your pass with a voucher code next to it. When it is time to register for an event, you will need to give the event’s voucher code for the pass holderĀ to the person who is registering the unit for the event. If you are registering as an individual, you can enter the voucher code yourself.

Voucher codes will subtract the pass holder’s base registration cost. Each voucher code is specific to the event and specific to the pass holder.
