Girl Scouts Are the Experts on Girl Leadership

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains is aware of Boy Scouts of America’s decision recently announced to allow girls into their program. With more than 100 years of experience and expertise in the field, Girl Scouts brings a wealth of knowledge to programs that meet the unique needs and specific interests of girls, including the way they learn best. That’s why we believe and will continue our girl-led, girl-centered programming which empowers the future leaders of tomorrow.

Gearing Up for an “Altogether Awesome” Girl Scout Cookie Season

Mark your calendars, the Girl Scout Cookie Program starts January 1, 2018!

After much discussion and input from our volunteers, our board of directors have voted and approved an increase to the price of Girl Scout Cookies from $4.00 to $5.00 per package. Specialty cookies like Girl Scouts S’mores and Toffee-tastics will stay at $5.00 per package. This increase aligns us with most of our neighboring councils and ensures our ability to continue providing girls in New Hampshire and Vermont with high quality, engaging, and unique programming.

Troop proceeds will also increase from an average of .64 cents per package last year up to .90 cents per package in 2018, enabling girls to support and give back to their communities and fund new adventures and life changing opportunities. From domestic and international trips to a week at Camp Farnsworth, our volunteers and girls know that Girl Scout Cookies help make it all possible!
