Rewards & Experiences

Who doesn’t love a little recognition for their hard work?

Even though we know participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program will teach girls valuable life skills (5, to be precise), there's one other reason girls love participating: rewards! Troops can earn proceeds and Troop Treasure. Girl Scouts can earn individual rewards, including the Early Reward, patches, and experiences.

In addition to incentive items for girls and troop proceeds, GSHCC offers Troop Treasure, a reward opportunity allowing girls to help support their Girl Scout experience. 

How can my troop earn Troop Treasure?
Troops can earn Troop Treasure based on their per girl average (PGA) for girls selling. Troops can view their troop’s PGA on their Smart Cookies dashboard and in the Troop Recognition Order. Troop Treasure will be awarded based on each troop’s PGA and the number of girls selling.

Reward Experiences

Please note for all experiences:

  • Girl Scouts must be Cadettes 11 years or older at the time of out of state travel due to GSUSA and Safety Activity Checkpoint guidelines.
  • Girls must be present at their chosen event in order to receive any special patches and swag items that may be given out at an event
  • Due to IRS guidelines, we are unable to provide tickets to events. Please plan accordingly and select the option that works for your Girl Scout. No make-up dates are available. If girls cannot attend the scheduled date, they will have the option of the additional item offered at that package level.
  • All reward experiences are girl-only unless otherwise noted on the Reward Card. Cookie reward experiences will be held on the published dates, so please plan accordingly. Due to IRS guidelines, girls cannot be given a ticket to an event and must be present to receive swag items.
  • To provide the best experience possible and to ensure girl safety, we are unable to make special accommodations for girl-only experiences. Parents wishing to attend experiences should select the “or” option denoted with a star at each level. Each experience level has a girl-only option and a chaperoned experience option.
  • In the event that in-person experiences must be cancelled due to COVID-19, GSHCC is excited to offer girls the physical item and virtual experience based on reward levels reached. This applies to all Cookie Experiences, including the Camp Voucher.
