Thank you for investing your valuable time to enrich girls’ lives through Girl Scouting. Your troop’s participation in the Treats & Keeps Program is an integral component of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. By engaging in the Treats & Keeps Program with your troop, girls will learn the 5 Skills at the core of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

The Treats & Keeps Program is a great opportunity for all the go-getters in your troop to earn money to kick-off the Girl Scout year. On average, troops earn over $300 in proceeds by participating in the Treats & Keeps Program which can be used on materials, events, outings and adventures...whatever the troop chooses.

No matter what your troop has planned this year, Treats & Keeps can help offset the cost! Troops now earn proceeds based on their Per Girl Selling Average (PGA). How do you calculate your PGA? It’s Easy...Take the total number of items sold by the troop divided by the number of girls with orders in M2.

Girl Scout Cadette, Senior and Ambassador troops can opt out for MORE proceeds! The troop will receive an additional $0.10 per item sold.

All troops can earn:

  • Chocolates/Nuts (Per Item Sold Online or Order Card)
    • 1-24 PGA = $1.00 each
    • 25+ PGA = $1.20 each
  • Magazines (Per Item Sold Online)
    • 1-24 PGA = $2.00 each
    • 25+ PGA = $2.20 each
