2017 Cookie Kickoff

Get ready to kick off the 2017 season of the Girl Scout Cookie Program with your Girl Scout sisters, family and the Jacksonville Jaguars!

Join us at Metropolitan Park for a day of #cookiebiz programs, family fun, entertainment and a picnic lunch, before heading over to Everbank Field to watch the Jacksonville Jaguars take on the Houston Texans. Before the day is over, Girl Scouts will be equipped with all the information they need to be the best #cookieboss they can be! Girls will participate in #cookiebiz activities that reinforce the 5 Skills, and they will acquire cookie sale safety tips and marketing pointers, while learning from our very own resident cookie experts. Whether a Girl Scout considers herself a seasoned cookie seller or this is her very first sale, she is sure to pick up some new skills to make this season a success.

Cookie Kickoff is Gateway Council's signature family event, so we'll have plenty of fun and activities for non-Girl Scouts too! A family fun zone with outdoor games, entertainment, food and the Girl Scout Shop on the Road will keep the whole crew busy.

This year will be one to remember, so grab your tickets, load up the family or your Girl Scout troop, and join us for a day of football, fun and cookies — what more could you ask for?
