2016 Dream Design Do! Cookie Program

This year's Girl Scout cookie program theme is Dream Design Do! Today's Girl Scout is more than a thinker: She's a doer, a dreamer of ideas, creator of solutions, and a believer in herself. This year's theme captures the spirit of this creative, proactive girl! It incites her to take action, and encourages her to make her dreams a reality.

Cookie Recipe for Success


The Girl Scout Cookie Program is our premier business enterprise activity. The tradition of selling cookies dates back to 1917 when Girl Scouts sold home-baked cookies to raise money for their troops and communities.

Since then, the activity has grown into an opportunity for girls to practice leadership while earning money for their troops and council activities.

The five skills girls "learn by doing" through product sales are:

  • goal setting

  • decision making

  • money management

  • people skills

  • business ethics
