Important Date: Deadline to pay and return unsold cards to Troop 56 team – April 24th, 2017

  • Cards may be returned in any increments and must be in excellent condition.
  • Failure to pay by this deadline will cost Troop 56 an additional 25% commission on each card (i.e. instead of paying $2.50/card to Crossroads of America, we will have to pay $3.75/card).
  • Camp Cards will not be accepted for “returns” after April 24th and become the financial responsibility of the Scout.
