About Girl Scout Cookies

When you buy Girl Scout Cookies, you feed joy and make a difference with every box.

Will your Girl Scout Cookie entrepreneur help the local hospital or animal shelter across town? Climb her first mountain? Start a nonprofit? It’s up to her and her troop. Proceeds stay local to power life-changing programs, experiences, and learning all year long!

When girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they also develop important life skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—that will set girls up for success beyond anything they can imagine.

That’s why we ask you to buy the delicious cookies you crave from your local Girl Scout Cookie business pro—not from her parents. You’ll enjoy your favorite cookies even more knowing you helped her do all the amazing things she’s got planned for this year while also learning a ton along the way.

Update about the 2021 Cookie Program

The annual Girl Scout Cookie Program start date is being delayed to February 1 to give us a little more time before everyone's favorite time of year - COOKIE TIME! We made this change in order to:

Provide more time to families and troops to enjoy the holiday season

Offer additional time for troops to meet and plan

Have the potential for more in-person selling options (depending on the public health situation in our area) 

The new 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Program timeline is:

January: All troop cookie captains will choose how to receive cookie selling materials. Cookie materials will be mailed by the end of the month. Cookie training will be available online for cookie captains and families in mid-January.

January 20 and 23:  Virtual Cookie Training 

January 31: "The Night Before Cookies" Virtual Cookie Rally for all girls

February 1: All girls begin taking cookie orders online or in person

February 15: Troop's first cookie order is due

February 22: Troop cookie pick-up begins

February 26-March 21: Cookie Booths/Drive-Thrus depending on the public health situation
