Cookie Badges & Mentorship

Every Girl Scout has the opportunity to earn the 5 Skills Cookie Badge! Here's how, at each level:

Cookie Captains are Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors or Ambassadors who have participated in previous cookie programs and plan to participate in this year’s cookie program. They mentor Cookie Rookies, Daisy or Brownie troops participating in the cookie program for the first time.

Cookie Captains who complete the required 10 hours and turn in a final report earn and receive an exclusive 2017 Cookie Captain patch.

Cookie Rookies benefit from older girl mentorship and have fun with experienced sister Girl Scouts!

Sign-ups to become a Cookie Captain coming soon! Contact Lauren Evans at for more information.
