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.

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.

Girl Scout programming is designed to help campers discover their potential through the development of new skills and the experiential learning cycle. Camp registration goes live on February 4, which is before girls will get confirmation if they have earned the voucher. Registration is not required prior to earning the voucher. However, girls who wish to secure a spot in a specific camp session may register before confirmation that they have earned the voucher, but will have to pay the $25 deposit on their own. The $25 deposit is non-refundable, so if the girl does not earn the reward, they have the option of paying the remaining balance and attending camp or canceling registration and losing the deposit.
