Walkabout 2018

Join GSGC’s first ever Girl Scout Cookie Walkabout during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, Feb. 23-25! 

Girl Scouts will walk their neighborhood selling cookies door to door. This is a great opportunity to visit customers you might have missed in January — or to revisit customers who need to restock!

Who can resist when a Girl Scout is at their door with their favorite cookies?! Going door to door one of the most effective ways to sell Girl Scout Cookies. In fact, according to a national study, 78 percent of customers who were not approached during a cookie sale said they would have purchased 2-4 boxes if asked!

Girl Scouts who participate in a walkabout during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend are eligible to earn a special patch! Here’s what you need to do:

  • Map out neighborhoods for your Walkabout and check them off as you walk them. 
  • Decorate your wagon or cart for your Walkabout to create excitement in the neighborhood. (Need some inspiration? Click here for tools and ideas!)
  • Snap a photo while you’re out and about, and submit it in the form below.


Can I have a Walkabout in a shopping center, park or other public area?

No. In order to maintain good relationships with property managers, stores and to be fair, walkabouts are only allowed in non-commercial areas. All booth sales must be coordinated through the council, including driveway booths.

Can we do a Walkabout at one of our troop meetings?

Yes! What a fun outing for your troop and a great way to help girls reach their goals!

Can we do a Walkabout as a family?

Yes! Girl Scouts embraces family involvement.


Important information

  • Girls should know their personal and troop goal.
  • Never go inside someone's home when selling cookies.
  • Never accept food or beverages while selling.
