Booth Support

Troops who are looking for extra support during Cookie Season can invite adults to lend a hand as cookie booth support.

Booth Supporters CANNOT:

  • Attend overnight trips with the troop
  • Drive Girl Scouts other than their own child
  • Count towards the Girl to Adult Safety Ratio
  • Handle troop funds

However, they may serve as the second adult at a cookie booth during Cookie Season.

To participate in the limited role of booth support, adults must sign the Booth Support Policies, Caregiver Code of Conduct, and complete a background check. Please see the Booth Support page to begin the process.

If adults are interested in fulfilling all aspects of a troop support role with their girl's troop, we recommend they become a Troop Support Volunteer
