Girl Scouts of Colorado is excited to announce additional training for troop cookie managers for the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie Program. If you’re planning to serve as a TCM this year, THANK YOU! We understand the time, commitment, and heart this volunteer role requires and we truly appreciate it. We will host a variety of Cookie University training sessions throughout the state.
Cookie University is an excellent opportunity for you to spend time with other troop cookie managers, get your required basic cookie training, and most importantly, ensure your troop’s Starting Inventory Order is well thought-out and meets the needs of your girl and troop. You can also participate in some exciting enrichment sessions, including Inventory Management, Digital Cookie, eBudde, and Sale Etiquette.
You can register for Cookie University by going to the Events page (http://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/en/events/training-events.html) on the Girl Scouts of Colorado website. If you can’t attend the training session in your area, feel free to attend one in another area.

Troop leaders, will your troop qualify for an early Cookie Booth selection opportunity?
The S’mores Club booth selection reward is back for the 2017-18 Girl Scout year and you don’t want to miss it!
To qualify for the S’mores Club, your troop must sell at least $350 in online sales during the 2017 Fall Product Program. The in-person delivery portion of the program ends Oct. 15 and the online portion of the Fall Sale Program ends on Oct. 30.
If your troop sells $350 or more online during the 2017 Fall Product Program, you will be notified in December via the email provided through the Troop Fall Sale Manager agreement and permitted to select one Cookie Booth in eBudde ahead of the council booth selection process.
If you have questions regarding the requirements or details for the booth selection opportunity, please reach out to your SUFSM or PSS. For full details on the S’mores Club Reward, visit www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/smores
Girl Scouts of Colorado is excited to offer this beautiful PANDORA sterling-silver bracelet with charms to girls and adult volunteers (troop product sales managers – one per person who qualifies) who earn their way into the exclusive S’mores Club during the 2017-18 membership year!
The S’mores Club is exclusively for Girl Scouts of Colorado girl members and adult volunteers who rock BOTH the 2017 Fall Product and 2018 Girl Scout Cookie programs. Girls can also earn a special personalized patch. Qualifying troops can earn an exclusive booth selection opportunity during the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie Program.
To join the S’mores Club and earn the reward, a girl must:
- Create an Avatar and sell 15 nut, candy items, and/or magazines online during the 2017 Fall Product Program
- AND sell at least 300 packages of Girl Scout Cookies during the 2018 Cookie Program
An adult (troop product sales managers – one per person who qualifies) can earn the reward:
- If the troop reaches $350 or more in online sales during 2017 Fall Sale Program
- AND during the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie Program, the troop achieves a per girl selling average of 300 or more packages. (The per girl average is calculated based on the total number of packages a troop sells, divided by the number of selling girls in that troop.)
Note: The reward for adults is for a troop participation only. Juliettes can still qualify for the club and receive her personalized patch and bracelet. However, parents of Juliettes can NOT receive the bracelet or booth sale opportunity.
All members of the S’mores Club must meet the requirements for BOTH sales to qualify. For more information, check the FAQs.
