The Boy Scouts of America and Jack Link’s® have teamed up on a multiyear partnership that will make Jack Link’s “The Official Protein Snack of the Boy Scouts of America” and the organization’s four national high-adventure bases.  This is a great way for your scout, Pack or Troop to raise money for summer camp.  Order your Jack Link’s Snacks today and start your fundraiser for summer camp.
