Welcome and thank you for taking interest in the Black Hills Area Council’s 2023 Fall Popcorn Sale. Every year hundreds of Scouts participate in selling popcorn throughout the Black Hills region to fund raise to help pay for summer camp, scouting events, uniforms, and so much more. With over 70% of sales staying in the Black Hills, every dollar raised goes further and further to help keep scouting alive and well.

Scouts of all ages also learn about “earning their own way” and other life skills such as salesmanship, entrepreneurship, presenting, and public speaking to name a few. These are vital skills that they will use down the road in their personal and professional life.

If you are a unit or a scout, thank you for participating in this year’s sale and helping to strengthen local scouting. If you are a customer, thank you for your support of local scouting in the Black Hills. Now, let us get popping!
