Parent Cookie Resources

Digital Cookie Program

In January, GSNorCal will be emailing all parents/guardians of eligible Girl Scouts instructions on how to log into the Digital Cookie Program for the first time. It will then be up to the parent/guardian to sign up their Girl Scout.

For girls 12 or younger:

  • Register via email sent from the council (parent owns the DOC account)
  • Work with your daughter on her Digital Cookie site and badges

For girls 13 or older:

  • Register via email sent from the council and register daughter for her own DOC account
  • Approve daughter’s Digital Cookie site

When Your Girl Sells Girl Scout Cookies, She Learns:

  • To set goals and meet deadlines. That means your daughter won’t tell you last minute that her science fair project is due tomorrow.
  • To work well with others. That means your daughter will do better on school projects or as a member of a sports team.
  • To talk and listen to all kinds of people. That means your daughter will be able to ask a teacher for help or navigate the school cafeteria more easily.
  • To handle money and make decisions about how to use it. That means your daughter will learn about spending, saving, and giving to those in need.
  • To act honestly and fairly. That means your daughter’s friends, classmates, and teachers will count on her and think of her as trustworthy.

Participating in the Cookie Program has Many Benefits for Your Family:

  • Your girl learns 5 key skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
  • The individual rewards your girl earns extends your family budget – she can use her earnings to pay for camp, programs, membership, uniforms, and much more.
  • You get to spend valuable time with your girl and observe her growth as she sets her goals and works with you toward reaching them.
