Cookie Training

What Can A Girl Do? I'll Show You How!

Cookie Program fun has never been easier! Volunteers have everything they need to guide girls through an enjoyable and successful cookie sale with user friendly online resources from Girl Scouts, Hornets' Nest Council and our baker partner, Little Brownie Baker.  Volunteers and parents can find activities for girls, information on the 5 skills learned through the Cookie Program, tips for booth sales and nutritional information on the cookies.   The Little Brownie website is packed with fun ideas that help girls to fully benefit from the Cookie Program, with experiences just right for their age.
