Cookies & More

Everything girls do in Girl Scouting is designed to help them grow into leaders of Courage, Confidence, and Character. The Girl Scout Council of Tropical Florida offers two product sale programs each year. The Girl Scout Cookie Program and Fall Product Activity Sale are innovative, fun, girl-led programs that engage girls' curiosity, teach life skills, including entrepreneurship, team work, and goal setting, all while directly contributing to the success of each girl's personal Girl Scout experience.

The 5 Skills - shaping your girl's future

  • Goal Setting

    Your Girl Scout sets goals individually and with her team, and creates a plan to reach those goals. She will also develop Cooperation and Team Building skills all along the way!

  • Decision Making

    Your Girl Scout helps decide how her team will spend their Fall Product & Cookie money, furthering her Critical Thinking and Problem Solving skills which will help her in many, many aspects of her life.

  • Money Management

    Your Girl Scout takes Fall Product Sale & Cookie orders, handles customers’ money and gains valuable and Practical Life Skills around financial literacy.

  • People Skills

    Your Girl Scout learns how to talk to, listen to and work with all kinds of people while selling Fall Product items and cookies. These experiences help her develop Healthy Relationship and Conflict Resolution skills she can use throughout her life.

  • Business Ethics

    Your Girl Scout is honest and responsible at every step of the Fall Product and Cookie sale. Her business ethics reinforce the Positive Values she is developing as a Girl Scout.

Why do they matter?

Because when your Girl Scout has learned these skills, she’ll be poised for success in her career. Think about it, when employers interview job candidates, they all look for similar qualities.
Employers want:
1. Someone who can set goals and meet deadlines.
2. Someone who works well with others.
3. Someone who understands customers.
4. Someone who can influence others.
5. Someone who is honest, trustworthy and reliable.

Sound like anyone you know? That’s your Girl Scout, using the 5 skills she learned participating in the Cookie and Fall Product Activity Sale Programs!

The Fall Product Sale Program takes place late September through mid October with QSP Magazines and Ashdon Farms Nut products.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program begins with initial orders in late November and the girls conducting direct sales in January through mid-February.
