What is Scout-O-Rama?

Scout-O-Rama is a large outdoor event where Scouting groups in our local community showcase games, crafts, activities, skills and more. All-in-all there are typically over 200 booths or activities at the yearly event, which amazes over 6,000 visitors.

Imagine thousands of scouts from all four counties coming together to show off the best of what Scouting has to offer to the community!

Scout leaders will leave Scout-O-Rama with months of activity ideas for their Troops, Crews or Packs. Scouts will leave with their heads spinning, full of the fun and amazing opportunities the Scouting program offers. Family members will leave happy, knowing that Scouting will make a difference in their child’s life.

Ticket Sales

Scouting units sell Scout-O-Rama ticket cards which will grant a family gate admission to the event, but card sales will earn money for you Scouting unit!

Ticket Sales Agreement

Units earn a 30% commission ($3 for every ticket sold) on all sales! This can add up to hundreds of dollars very quickly! The $10 Ticket Cards are good for Scout-O-Rama entry for a family. Parking fees are not included.

Secret Scouter (Shopper Program); if a Secret Scouter is approached during the sale and asked, “please purchase this card to help send me to camp” then the scout will receive a GoPro!, mountain bike, or other valuable prize! Let the Council know your sales dates so the Secret Scouter is available for your unit.

Unit Incentive Program; the unit (Pack, Troop, or Crew) in each District that sells the most tickets will receive a meeting activity/presentation from Mad Science of the Bay Area (Santa Clara County) or Learn to Discover (Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Benito Counties).
