Cookie Booths

Cookie booths allow girls an opportunity to reach their goals while working together as a team. Troops can use their extra cookies or pick up additional cookies from the cookie cupboard - an area location that stocks cookies to distribute to troops. Troops then set up shop at high-traffic locations in the community, such as stores, places of worship, sporting events, gas stations, etc. A Girl Scout Cookie Booth is the girls’ very own storefront for their business!

How do troops order booth cookies? 
It's easy! Just follow these steps:

Clover GO Credit Card Processing

Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois has partnered with First Data to offer credit card processing for troops through the Clover Go app.

Troops and girls can accept credit cards during booth sales and the funds are desposited directly into the troop's bank account - making it fast, easy, and efficient to accept credit cards! The best part is Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois is covering all of the processing fees! (Note: Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois will not cover the cost of additional hardware purchased by troops).
