The 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Season is fast approaching! Keep an eye out as new resources and trainings are posted.

We want the Girl Scout Cookie Program to be as successful as possible for girls and volunteers! Check out the resources below for everything you need to know about the cookie program.


The Masquerade Cookie
Virtual Cookie Rally
January 8, 2021 at 6:00 p.m.

Coming January 8, 2021, your favorite Girl Scout cookies will strut their stuff, singing their hearts out while in disguise, and you get to guess which cookie is performing which song. It’s The Masquerade Cookie!

During this FREE virtual cookie rally, girls will enjoy a live show from the disguised cookies and will guess the cookie singer based on the song being performed. Girls will also set goals for the upcoming Girl Scout Cookie Season and learn some tips and tricks for selling cookies safely online and in person. (Social distancing is key!)

Registration opens Monday, November 23, at 12:00 p.m.!

Cookie Rewards

Troop Goal Getter Reward

Each troop can be a Goal Getter by increasing their troop’s initial order by 10% over last year’s troop initial order. New troops (as of this membership year) must place an initial order of 10% more than the overall GSU average from 2020. Troops do not need to fill out a Goal Getter Form in order to be eligible.

Goal Getter Program - 2021 Update coming soon!

Older Girl Opt Out Program

Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador troops may choose to opt out of receiving rewards and instead earn additional Activity Credits! Troops may only opt out if the entire troop consists of Cadettes and above. Troops must submit the Older Girl Opt-Out Form in order to opt out of rewards.

Older Girl Opt Out Program

Activity Credits

Girl Scouts of Utah Activity Credits encourage girls to participate in the cookie program. Activity Credits give parents/guardians the freedom to choose how to reward girls for their hard work. A girl and her parents/guardians, not the adult leaders, decide how her Activity Credits will be utilized. Check out the Activity Credit Program for more details.

350+ Cookie Celebration

Girls who sell 350+ packages of cookies will be invited to join other Girl Scouts on June 5, 2021 for a celebration at Cowabunga Bay in Draper, Utah! Girls will have the option to attend either the morning session or the afternoon session. The Cookie Celebration includes entrance to the waterpark, drinks, a catered lunch, and a sneak peek at next year’s cookie program and Fall Product Program rewards.

If a Girl Scout in your troop earns the 350+ Cookie Celebration at Cowabunga Bay, her primary contact listed on her membership record will receive an email with event details and registration instructions. This email will be sent at the beginning of April 2021.

A parent/guardian or troop leader must register the girl for this event following the instructions in the email. Earning the event does not equal registration.

4,000+ Disneyland Trip

Girls who sell 4,000+ packages of cookies will earn a 3-night trip to Disneyland in California. The trip includes airfare, hotel, park tickets, and meals for the girl. This trip is for girls only and will be chaperoned by Girl Scouts of Utah council staff. Qualifying girls will receive an email in April with details and information on registration. Trip date is TBD.

5,500+ Disney Cruise

Girls who sell 5,500+ packages of cookies will earn an amazing 3-night cruise to Baja from San Diego on the Disney Cruise Line. Trip includes airfare, cruise, and meals for the girl. This trip is for girls only and will be chaperoned by Girl Scouts of Utah council staff. Qualifying girls will receive an email in April with details and information on registration. The cruise is scheduled for October 15, 2021

Cookie Rallies

What is a Cookie Rally? It’s an event to “rally” your girls so they can launch their Cookie Business into a bright future!

While the Girl Scout Cookie Program is a great way to earn funds and helps many girls do amazing things, we know that it can and should go beyond “just” a fundraiser. It should also be a skill-building learning opportunity for the girls, and at Girl Scouts, we focus on the 5 Skills of the Cookie Program. A Cookie Rally is a great opportunity to join with other Girl Scouts and learn about those 5 Skills while having a blast! It’s like a big party!

Check with your Service Unit Product Program Representative to find a rally near you!

Cookie Booths

Looking for a way to keep your cookie booth inventory organized and accurate? Download the handy Cookie Booth Inventory Tracker template form to help your troop keep track of sales and inventory during your cookie booths!

“My Sales” Troop Cookie Booths

Troops are encouraged to contact businesses outside of the council secured booth locations to conduct a troop booth at. TCMs need to download the “My Sales” Troop Cookie Booth Form and have the location sign it. Once it is signed the TCM will enter the information into eBudde for approval from GSU. 

“My Sales” Troop Cookie Booth Form

Troop Gift of Caring

Virtual Gift of Caring through Digital Cookie

Customers can purchase Gift of Caring packages through Digital Cookie.  These cookie packages will be ordered and delivered to the Utah Food Bank by Girl Scouts of Utah. TCMs do not need to purchase these cookie packages in their initial orders or from the cookie cupboards.

Troop Gift of Caring

Your troop can reach out to an organization in your community to collect orders for and deliver those donated cookies to through the Troop Gift of Caring program. The troop will decide who to partner with, collect the donations, and personally deliver the donated packages of cookies. It’s a great way to give back while teaching the troop valuable life lessons!

Gift of Caring patches can be purchased through the GSU retail shops!


The deadline for 2019 Activity Credits has been extended to December 23, 2020. This is a one-time exception; all 2019 Activity Credits must be used by that date. If you opt to mail in your Activity Credits, they must be postmarked by December 15.
