Popcorn Sale


NEW THIS YEAR!  Trails End is sending out emails to have your Unit register online for popcorn sales this year.  If you’re a returning Unit Kernel, please check to see if you received this link and sign up there.  If you are a NEW Kernel or you did not received the email from Trails End, please click on the link below to sign up for the 2018 Popcorn sales.

   Trail’s End Popcorn/Online Sales 


The Popcorn Sale is Important!

There are plenty of good reasons for your Scouts to take part in the annual popcorn sale. Scouts can earn money for camp and activities throughout the year and they learn valuable skills like teamwork, goal setting, time management and salesmanship – just to name a few. Scouts gain confidence and a sense of accomplishment, the popcorn sale is not about selling popcorn, it’s about promoting Scouting!

Selling popcorn also helps the Council raise money for improving our summer camps, offering more extensive training for our volunteer leaders, and keeps program and activity costs down. Best of all, there is NO upfront cost to your Unit to participate! The popcorn sale benefits the council as a whole by helping us!



Let’s get started!

Is your unit ready to sell? Call or email Roslyn Ortiz at 714-546-4990 ext. 133 or RoslynO@ocbsa.org to confirm your participation and to make arrangements for any popcorn materials you may need.

Store Front Sales

“Scouts are Courteous/Kind….. when booking your time slots, please take no more than 2-3 time slots per day/location (no more than 6 hours) in any given day to allow others access to the same store.”

Some stores may require a Certificate of Insurance before you can sell in front of their store. You may receive this from Council by filling out the Request for Certificate of Insurance form located here. In most cases the store does not want to track the units coming to sell, so selling will be on a first come, first sell basis and to be scheduled with the store location of your choice. Stater Bros. and Irvine Property storefronts are the only council coordinated booth sales.

 Click Here to sign up for these storefronts.

If the store manager requires a copy of the approval letter from Stater Bros please click here: stater bros approval
