Cookie Program Resources



Hey, Girl Scouts. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you'll learn valuable sales and business skills while raising funds to support your troop's activities. Your customers can order from you via your online shop or in-person, and have their order delivered or shipped directly to them. 

Every purchase from our annual Girl Scout Cookie Program helps you earn some of the funding needed to participate in unique and amazing experiences while learning five essential life skills: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, and Business Ethics. 

Resources for Girls & Families

Meet this year's mascot...

Lucy the Axolotl

  • Axolotls natural habitat is lake Xochimilco in Mexcio City, Mexico.
  • Axolotls swim with plants like water lilies and water lettuce, and enjoy companions like crayfish, fish, and frogs.
  • Axolotls have external gills on each side of their head so they can breathe.
  • Axolotls can be found in over 18 colors!
  • Axolotols can blend into their environment.
Earn recognition items

During the Cookie Program, you will not only earn funds for your Girl Scout activities—you'll earn recognition items and patches, too. Check out the different things on the Rewards Card that you might want to receive. 

Build-A-Bear is here!

In partnership with Build-A-Bear Workshop, GSNNJ has installed a bear-building workshop in our Riverdale location. You can stop in and create your own fuzzy friend dressed in a matching Girl Scout uniform. Plus, for the 2023-2024 membership year, you can work towards earning a FREE Girl Scout Build-A-Bear® through participation in the Fall Product and Girl Scout Cookie Programs.

You need to have sold at least 30 items during the 2023 Fall Product Program and you must sell 175 packages of Girl Scout Cookies during the 2024 Girl Scout Cookie Program to earn the opportunity to build a buddy for free. (Didn't participate in the Fall Product Program? You can still earn a free bear by selling 275 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to qualify.)

We're so excited to announce TWO NEW REWARDS for the GSNNJ 2024 Girl Scout Cookie Program!

Free Week of Summer Camp: Every girl who sells more than 150 cookie packages will be entered into our giveaway for a FREE week of Girl Scout Summer Camp at either Lake Rickabear Camp in Kinnelon or Jockey Hollow Camp in Mendham (a $495 value applied to a one-week Summer Fun session. Add-on programs are available.) We will randomly select 10 Girl Scouts (5 recipients for each camp) as winners.
