Front Porch: Camp Fire candy now on sale
Camp Fire candy has been a long-standing tradition in Snohomish County, dating back to the 1930s.
Every January and February, Camp Fire kids and their parents set out around the county to sell mints, caramel clusters, Almond Roca, P'nuttles and trail mix.
"The phone at our office has been ringing a lot with people anxious to get their favorite candy" said Michael Deal, director of operations at Camp Fire's Snohomish County Council's office, in a press release.
The candy sale officially begins today and lasts through Feb. 18. The proceeds of the candy sale go to support programming and Camp Killoqua, a 185-acre outdoor camp that offers an outdoor camp experience to kids from all over.
Each box of candy is $5. The children earn credit based on how much they sell. Kids can pay for a week at Camp Killoqua by selling a certain amount of candy.
For a list of sites where the kids will be selling the candy, call the Camp Fire office at 425-258-5437. For more information on Camp Killoqua, go to www.campfiresnoco.org.
