For Cookie Sellers

When you sell Girl Scout Cookies, you're doing more than just helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You're doing it with a goal in mind. Whether that goal is a pizza party, a community project, or your first overnight trip with your troop, you know how many boxes you need to sell to make it happen.

Individually Registered Members

An IRM is a girl participating in Girl Scouts independent of a troop. Girls in troops may also participate in the cookie program as IRMs if their troop is not participating; it will not affect their membership status. IRMs must have a trained adult who is registered and background screened to oversee their participation. Get started by contacting your service unit cookie coordinator or cookies@sdgirlscouts.org for online training.

Cookie Captains and Cookie Rookies

Cookie Captains are Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors or Ambassadors who have participated in previous cookie programs and plan to participate in this year’s cookie program. They mentor Cookie Rookies, Daisy or Brownie troops participating in the cookie program for the first time.

Cookie Captains who complete the required 10 hours and turn in a final report earn and receive an exclusive 2017 Cookie Captain patch. Cookie Rookies benefit from older girl mentorship and have fun with experienced sister Girl Scouts!
