Introducing the Trail's End Take Order Digital App

Introducing the Trail’s End Take Order Digital App

Take Order has gone mobile!

Trail’s End now has a digital version of the Take Order. A unit kernel can set up their unit to utilize the digital Take  Order form, thus allowing Scouts to take digital orders and payments through the app. Orders will roll into the unit’s Take Order and kernels can see, in real time, the total orders by Scouts.

For more information on how to set up the app for your unit, please click here.

Please note that the credit card fee structure (mentioned on page 6 of the above document), may have changed slightly since 2016. Be sure to check the Swipe link for current fees.

This is different than online sales!

Orders taken through the Take Order digital app will be ordered by the unit in their Take Order and Scouts will have to go back and deliver that product.

Scouting units run on popcorn…and hiking and camping and swimming, too. The sale not only builds leadership and confidence but it allows a Scout to learn the value of earning their own way.


Incentive for those units who did not sell last year!

We still have availability to sign up units that didn’t sell last year to get $1,000 in free product if they get signed up soon!

That’s Right!  $1,000 in pure profit from first $1,000 sold.

That is so easy to do! It can be done in one Show & Sell in 8 hours. What unit can’t use a $1000 boost in their funds.

The sooner you sign up, the sooner we’ll know who qualifies.

 


One of the biggest improvements for 2018…

All units earn 32% commission on total sales!

Total sales >$15,000 earn 35% commission!

  • Rocky Mountain Climbing
  • Horse Wranglers
  • U.S. Calvary Themed Shooting Sports
  • Blacksmithing & Metal Work

UNIT / CAMPSITE REGISTRATION

Registration for campsites begins this week and runs through Nov 16.  Your initial registration will 1.) establish a key unit leader contact, 2.) provide an estimate of youth and adult attendees and 3.) indicate your preferred campsite assignments.

There are two easy ways to request a reservation for Circle Ten Council’s Winter Camp.

  1. You can request a reservation through Circle Ten’s CampMaster reservation system (www.circle10.camp-master.com).  If you do not have a CampMaster account, you will need to create one.  Once registered and logged in, you will select Winter Camp 2018 from the list of upcoming events on the left side of the screen.  Once you have submitted your request, you will have a confirmation e-mail sent to the address listed in your CampMaster account profile.
  2. You can fill out and return the paper reservation form included in the Leaders Guide appendix and return it to either of the Council Service Centers.  We will create a CampMaster account for you based on the information on your paper form.
  3. As in years past, the scheduled arrival day for Winter Camp 2018 is Thursday, December 27. Early arrival is available after 10:00 a.m. on December 26th.Please do not arrive before 10:00 a.m. on the 26th.

    If your troop chooses to arrive on December 26th please be mindful that this is the time when the staff sets up winter camp. There is no program and minimal staff assistance will be available.

[NEW] CIRCLE TEN SUMMER CAMP APPRECIATION DISCOUNT

If your unit attended a Circle Ten summer camp in 2018, your unit is eligible for a special 20% discount on the $45 Winter Camp registration fee.  Units that had a reservation for a 2018 Circle Ten summer camp are eligible for this discount regardless of which Scouts participate in which activities.  (Maverick campers do not qualify a unit for this special discount).

Units will receive an email from Circle Ten with a discount code the week of Sept 17.  If you do not receive an email by Friday, Sept 21 and believe your unit is eligible, please contact the Camping department at scott.arrington@scouting.org .

When you make your reservation for Winter Camp, be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the “Additional Information” tab.  Enter your unit’s discount code in the Discount Coupon field and you will receive 20% off your reservation balance due.

MB / PROGRAM REGISTRATION

On October 12, a detailed Merit Badge and Program Addendum will be published and course registration for individual merit badges and program activities will open up through CampMaster.

We hope to see you and your units back at Winter Camp this year.
