Troops/Girls have the option of participating in the sales or not. Product sales are meant to be the primary funding source for Troop activities as well as financial support for their Service Unit and Council activities. Both sales have online training and easy-to-use materials for both girls and adults to be successful!
Girls Scouts have two public sales events;
The Troop and Girl Scout can use money earned in a variety of ways:
- Troop Activities such as Badge work, hosting community events, troop excursions,
- Use funds to attend Day Camps & Overnight Camps,
- Specific skill events, and more.
In addition to raising money, the product sales also teach 5 important financial literacy lessons to the girls. At each level, there are also badges that can be earned that support the lessons learned from cookie sales. We encourage all troops to participate in one or both of the Product Sales Program. Products are ordered through the Girl Scout and they manage their product sales through direct person-to-person exchange or through their online ordering program. Contact your local Girl Scout for more information.
