Troop uses cookie money to stay at Twisted Pine and visit Ice Castle

Submitted by Megan Cook

We stayed at Twisted Pine Lodge for our cookie rally this year. We were so happy to have the lodge that was warm. We learned at our cookie rally that because we sell cookies, Girl Scouts of Colorado can offer locations like this to troops for very reasonable rates. Because we had a location like Twisted Pine to stay at, we were able to go as a troop to the Ice Castle in Dillon. It was a long drive from Colorado Springs and being able to stay halfway helped our parent volunteers not have to drive both ways in one day. It was a long drive.

The Ice Castle was so much fun. We had a tour by the manager, who was a Girl Scout alum. She showed us the features of the castle and told us how it was made. We played in the caves and on the slides. We played until we were too cold to stay any longer. Because we sold cookies, we as a troop paid for this entire trip for 20 girls.

Greeley Service Unit 702 recently held a Cookie Rally to get the girls excited about selling cookies. We built towers with cookie case boxes. We had a photo booth with cookie props, where the girls could have their pictures taken. The girls and parents were able to sample Girl Scout Cookies. Milk was provided by Fat Albert’s Restaurant of Greeley. To end the night a sheriff’s deputy from the Weld County Sheriff’s Department talked to the girls about safety when selling cookies in their neighborhood or at their booth sales. A fun time was had by all.

Colorado Springs cookie rallies

Colorado Springs

This past weekend, Colorado Springs GPS girls hosted two sold out cookie rallies. Their objective was to teach Girl Scouts selling cookies about the cookies they are selling, a little history on them, how to set up a good booth, and also showed an example of bad booths. They learned how to set goals, see the incentives, make a cookie sign, and best of all, taste the cookies. We sold out at both venues and encountered some crowding, but overall feel the girls did a great job teaching other girls, leading by the girl-led program of Girl scouts.
