Darryl, this is in response to your question about my original e-mail
regarding what our pack does for those who don't sell popcorn. You had
asked about those who can't afford to pay.
Our pack lets everyone know that, if they can't sell for whatever reason,
they are to contact our committee chair to confidentially discuss their
situation. The pack is willing to waive the buy-out if circumstances
warrant. If the reason is strictly financial, however, the pack wants to
see the boy actually sell popcorn to help "pay his own way" and "help the
pack go". I've seen a lot of council camps' info, and having to sell
popcorn is in line with many campership qualifications.
