Scout Fair is April 6, 2019 from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm @ NRG Arena
Scouts and the entire family will enjoy visiting hundreds of booths with fun activities and crafts, learning Scout skills, meeting new friends and tasting the delicious outdoor cooking. Meet leaders and Scouts from your neighborhood. Sample the amazing dutch oven creations and other delicacies in the outdoor cooking area. Watch demonstrations, interact with participating booths from our community partners and pick up free offers.
Scout Fair is open to the public and is free. Parking at NRG is typically $12, so bring cash for that. There are hundreds of activities at Scout Fair that the entire family will enjoy. Packs, troops, crews, ships and posts from around the council set up interactive booths to show our community what Scouting is all about, and to share Scouting skills with fellow Scouts and Scout leaders. Booths have typically included crafts, games, rope making, orienteering, obstacle courses, first aid activities, art, hobbies, gardening, leatherworking, music, nature activities, outdoor cooking, rope bridges, putt-putt golf, catapults and much more. Scouts and parents work together to set-up and run the booth.
This year, our Scouts have the opportunity to sell Scout Fair Coupon Books in front of Kroger at Echo Lane, as well as at home. We are also looking at getting a booth at Scout Fair with our Scouts teaching a project to other Scouts who visit our booth.

Scout Fair Coupon Book Sales
Scout Fair coupon books are an easy way for units to raise money and prepare Scouts to earn their own way! The Scout Fair coupon book offers great savings for the buyer, while Scouts earn commissions for every $10 coupon book purchased. Buyers support the Scouting program while receiving hundreds of dollars in valuable savings from partners such as Dick's Sporting Goods, Buffalo Wild Wings, Luby's, Fuddruckers, Houston Dynamo/Dash the Houston Astros and many more. All units receive a 30% base commission for each $10 Scout Fair coupon book sold, for funds turned in on or before Scout Fair. Participate at Scout Fair with a booth and earn an additional 10% commission. Units can also take advantage of early bird turn-in dates offering 5%, 3% and 1% additional bonus commissions. In addition, your Scouts will qualify for prizes once they sell 15 coupon books.
Although our pack has other fundraisers that support us throughout the year, this SHAC sponsored fundraiser provides opportunity for our ambitious Scout salsemen to earn some amazing prizes!
