It's Time For Cookies!

Posted By Ingrid Williams, Wednesday, February 05, 2014

The Girl Scout Cookie Program provides an important ingredient for leadership by helping girls develop five key skills: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills and Business Ethics. These five skills are an important component of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

Girls earn Cookie Credit which may be used to discount the cost of activities like day camp, resident camp, or other special events; and for items purchased in the Girl Scout Store that will enrich her experience. This credit accumulates throughout her years as a Girl Scout.

The Cookie Program also empowers girls themselves to decide how to spend part of the proceeds – including ways to make the world a better place and lead change in their communities. Active participation will provide funds for the troop’s activities, and helps to underwrite the costs of all council campsites, facilities and programs, making them affordable for all girls.

Every year the resources grow. Did you know …

Don’t forget … it’s not too late to sell Girl Scout Cookies! If you’re not yet a Girl Scout, you can join online at www.gseok.org/onlineregistration. If you are in a troop, talk to your troop leader about getting started. Individually registered Girl Scouts can participate as well. If you’re not sure who to contact, send a quick email cookies@gseok.org.
