Welcome to the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Program!
Please refer to your Troop Envelope for a comprehensive collection of everything Girl Scout Cookie.
The Cookie Program is an amazing opportunity for your Girl Scouts
to participate in a quality council-sponsored program that will
develop life skills and help raise for their own troop activities.
When you guide girls through a cookie sale, you will get a firsthand
look at the skills and confidence girls develop along the way. Your
support during the program makes all the difference and we truly
appreciate your time and dedication to the girls in your
This year's Cookie Program runs Feb 18 - Mar 21, 2021
While troops won't have cookies until just a few days before the sale begins, they can use their paper order cards to begin marketing their sale starting December 1, 2020 - as long as your troop has completed training and received the materials. While girls may secure support for their sale, they may not deliver cookies or collect money before February 18, 2021. Girls can, however, set up and use their Digital Cookie site starting December 1, 2020.
It Takes a Team
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is a group effort. A troop leader will need a troop cookie sale manager that runs the logistics of the sale. A troop cookie sale manager will need parents to help with picking up Girl Scout Cookies, chaperoning booth sales, and more. Build your team and you will build a great experience for the girls - minus the stress!
In order to participate, a troop will need:
- One GSUSA registered adult to manage the Cookie Program for your troop. A co-leader or parent is ideal. It is always good to have a back-up person who can help during the program.
- The Troop Cookie Manager must attend training before your troop will be allowed to participate. If the back-up can also attend, that is helpful.
- Participating girls must be registered Girl Scouts for the 2021 membership year and must return a signed Parent/Guardian Permission Form before they can begin selling.
- Each girl should be given girl materials to take home. Parents should make the decision whether they would like their daughter to participate in the program.
