The 2023 Cookie Program has been extended until April 3. We know many troops, especially those in North Dakota, have been battling extreme winter weather that has severely affected their ability to sell cookies. We want to give every Girl Scout the chance to sell their inventory and achieve their goals.
We know some troops may be ready to wrap up their cookie season, which is still an option! Troops that are ready to complete their End of Program Checklist can do so.
NOTE: Deciding to participate in the extension should be a troop decision, please confirm with your troop leader on whether your troop will continue to sell during the extension.
The Cookie Program isn’t the only thing getting extended this week. We are extending our RETAIL Sale for another week, too! Get 15% off all items in-store, online at Juliette’s Boutique, and by mail and phone now through March 25.
Dakota Horizons' retail services offer a variety of ways to shop for badges, uniforms, awards, gifts, specialty items, and more! Find the shopping option that best meets your needs at gsdakotahorizons.org/shop.

April is Volunteer Appreciation Month and it’s no secret that Girl Scouts would not be possible without troop leaders. You help Girl Scouts dream big. You encourage them to become changemakers, trailblazers, and explorers. You’re their role model and that is no small job!

Getting outside is for a girl's overall well-being and growth and it can be an amazing part of the Girl Scout experience. This module will introduce troop leaders to what they can do to begin sharing the outdoors with their troop.
