Cookie Dough cards work similar to your typical Gift Card, and is a girl reward earned through selling Girl Scout cookies. Girls may choose Cookie Dough instead of selected Cookie Reward items and can be used to pay for a variety of Girl Scout products and activities. Cookie Dough expires May 15, 2015 and can only be transferred between siblings. Cookie Dough can offset costs for…
- Items at the Council Shop
- Resident or day Camp
- Girl Scout sponsored programs
- Membership dues
- A Lifetime Membership
- And Travel!
Cookie Dough cards can be used directly at the Council Shop, like a typical Gift Card; however, if Cookie Dough is used for registration or membership fees, a Redeeming Cookie Dough Form must be submitted to the registration department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cookie Dough and Traveling with Girl Scouts
How do you use Cookie Dough to pay for travel not sponsored by Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine… i.e. how can a girl pay for her portion of a troop trip to let’s say… Savannah, Georgia?
Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council Troop Travel
First, girls, as a troop, decide where they want to travel. The Troop Leader then has the trip approved by the MSE, completes the Trip Application Form and submits it to the MSE. The form will ask the Troop Leader to calculate total cost per participant. Please see the Troop Trip Application Form for Girl Scout policy, procedures and safety regulations.
An individual girl may use her Cookie Dough to pay for her portion of the trip; however, it is important to remember that Cookie Dough belongs to the girl, not the troop, and a girl may spend her Cookie Dough as she and her guardian sees fit.
If a girl wishes to use Cookie Dough to offset her traveling expenses, the troop leader will submit the signed Trip Application Form, the Redeeming Cookie Dough Form (for each girl using Cookie Dough) and a trip itinerary email@example.com. The Product Program Team will issue a check to the appropriate vendor.
GSUSA Destinations, Getaways, and International Events
Girls must submit the Acceptance Letter received by the sponsoring Council to firstname.lastname@example.org.The Product Program Team will issue a check to the appropriate vendor.
