Be a registered Girl Scout for the 2021-2022 Girl Scout membership year
How to Participate
The Girl Scout Cookie Program experience can be customized to fit the needs of any family or troop, picking all or some of the ways below.
Using the order card is a great tool to help Girl Scouts reach their goals. Use it to take initial orders from customers and re-orders from those who need just one more box of their favorite treat. In-person ordering not an option? The order card can be used for orders taken over the phone, or through email or text.
Initial Order Taking: Jan. 1 - Late Jan. (deadline set by troop)
Goal Getter Order Taking: Jan. 24 – Mar. (deadline set by troop)
Digital Cookie: Jan. 1 – Mar. 11
Digital Cookie is a fun, educational tool that helps girls run and manage their Girl Scout Cookie business online. Girl Scouts offer their customers the convenience of ordering and paying online while learning digital marketing skills. Girls who pair Digital Cookie with the order card sell on average 76% more cookie boxes. This is an easy way to participate in the program and is the perfect option for those who would prefer to remain contactless.
Cookie Booths: Feb. 7 - April 30
Cookie Booths are a troop activity that allows Girl Scouts to sell directly to the public with cookies in hand at a local business. Troops can choose from in-person, drive-thru or virtual booths. Check with your Girl Scout’s troop to see how you can provide support for these activities.
Smiles4Military/Gift of Caring: Jan. 1 – Mar. 11
With the Smiles4Military initiative, customers can donate Girl Scout Cookies to those serving in the military at home and abroad. Donations are made in $5.00 increments with a Girl Scout on her order card, online with Digital Cookie, or at a cookie booth. Girls who include this initiative with other ways of order taking sell on average 250+ boxes of cookies.
Troops can also create their own Gift of Caring projects, designating cookie donations to their favorite cause or charity.
