Walkabout Weekend

Join GSGC’s annual Girl Scout Cookie Walkabout during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend! 

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. 
  • Snap a photo while you’re out and about, and submit it in the form below.

FAQ

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

Safety is the priority! Girls are encouraged to do their Walkabout in their neighborhood, but they can also visit community sporting events (hello, pop-up booth opportunity!) and local parks as long as they follow all the safety protocols.

Girls should not hold Walkabouts in shopping centers. Many stores have strict policies against solicitation. If you know of a great location for a potential booth, contact your CPSM!

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.
