Girl Scout Cookies cost $5 per box, and 100% of the cookie program proceeds stay local. Girls decide how to spend their troop cookie money and reinvest it back into their neighborhoods through community service projects and learning experiences. Girls Scouts do amazing things with the money they earn, and it’s all powered by the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

2017 marks the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts selling cookies. To celebrate, GSSN will introduce a commemorative Girl Scout S’mores™ cookie. The delicious s’mores-inspired crispy graham cookie is double-dipped in a crème icing and enrobed in a chocolate coating. Also included in the tasty 2017 cookie line-up are Gluten-Free Trios, Thanks-A-Lots, Shortbreads, Peanut Butter Patties, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, and of course, the famous Thin Mints.

All girls in grades K-12 can still join Girl Scouts to take part in the cookie program, making them eligible to earn badges, attend summer camp, join in community Girl Scout events, travel opportunities, and more. Registration information can be found at
