Girl Scout Cookie Program to Start January 12, 2013

When your local Girl Scouts come calling with this year’s best-selling cookies, remember you’re saying hello to tomorrow’s business leaders.

Looking to fulfill that Girl Scout Cookie craving?

The 2013 Girl Scout Cookie Program wrapped up on March 31, 2013. Check back in December to get the scoop on dates for the 2014 sale. Thank you for supporting girls in learning valuable entrepreneurial skills that will last them a lifetime.

How can I find Girl Scouts selling cookies?

Starting in mid-February, you can visit the cookie booth locator and type in your zip code to find booth sales near you. Or email for more information on our local cookie booth locations. If you call the council at (775) 322-0642, volunteers or a staff member can also help you find a cookie booth or a Girl Scout troop near you.

Why don’t Girl Scouts sell cookies year-round?

Selling Girl Scout Cookies is an important component of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience for girls. More than just a fundraising activity, the goal of the program is to teach girls important tools they need to become future business leaders and entrepreneurs.

Girl Scout councils conduct only one cookie sale per year. For most councils, these activities take place between January and April, but some occur as early as September. Each council develops the procedures and guidelines for its cookie activities, including the dates when you can order or purchase cookies and the price you will pay per box.

Can I buy Girl Scout Cookies online?

Girl Scout Cookies can only be purchased from registered Girl Scouts during cookie season. At this time, Girl Scouts of the USA does not allow online sales of Girl Scout Cookies. However, we are exploring the possibility of adding online sales at some point in the future, as long as girls are still able to learn valuable leadership skills.

Please note: Cookies found for sale online at auction and community list sites should not be purchased under any circumstances, as neither GSUSA, Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada, nor our licensed bakers can guarantee the freshness of these cookies. Further, purchasing cookies in this way does not support girls participating in the cookie program.
